Archaeologists Discovered Gladiator School Underneath Vienna

Archaeologists in Austria have discovered the remains of an unusual school under the grounds of Vienna: a school for Roman gladiators, where slaves and prisoners were taught to fight to the death.

One of the distinctive parts of the ruins is a thick wooden post in the middle of the training area which was used by gladiators as a practice enemy.

The Roemisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum said the three-dimensional images of the school reveal it to have been a mixture of a barracks and a prison.
