Rome's Ludus Magnus Gladiator School is the largest and most distinguished of the gladiatorial schools of Rome. The Ludus was built between 81 and 96 AD by Emperor Domitian, whose father and brother had built the Colosseum. There was lots of speculation about where the Ludus was located, right up to 1937 when it was discovered right alongside the Colosseum. The Ludus Magnus used to boast a central training area, amphitheatre, stands for spectators to peer down onto the fighting prisoners, as well as sleeping quarters for the Gladiators.
