A2 Blood and Sand: Roman Spectacles in Fact and Fiction
The course will focus on the study of Roman public spectacles (ludi), including amphitheatre shows, circus races, and athletic competitions.  A broad range of primary evidence will be studied with the aim of developing a better understanding of the content, context, and social significance of these shows.  The course will have a strong archaeological component, involving the study of the excavated remains of Roman amphitheatres and circuses in Italy and in various parts of the Roman Empire.  Particular attention will be paid to the evidence for Roman spectacles in North Africa, where some of the best preserved Roman entertainment facilities survive.  At the same time we will be looking in detail at selected Roman written sources (in translation) which help in interpreting the archaeological material.
