I just love the way archaeology can tell us new things. A huge find in York, of more than 80 skeletons, has brought to light evidence of a man who was killed by a large cat. Many of the men also had longer right arms than left, proof that they entered gladiatorial training in their early teens. Take that, the people who emailed me to say that Romulus was too young to be sold into a ludus! I had some proof before hand, but this makes it concrete. Read a great article in the Independent about it here. Watch a documentary about it on Channel 4 on the 14th of June too.
