    Using the abundant evidence of Pompeii's amphitheatre and gladiatorial barracks, as well as the depictions of combat in the city's wall paintings, mosaics and graffiti, Jacobelli presents an illustrated account of the gladiators of the Roman Empire, their origins, training and equipment and the highly organized games in which they competed. The final chapter, by Riccardo Lattuada, outlines the reception of gladiators in Western culture, from the Middle Ages to the present day.
