The romans had a fascination for games which were bloody and usually ended in death for many.
It was often thought the thumbs down was a signal for a winning gladiator to finish off his opponent, research has proved otherwise, the thumbs up with a gentle stab to ones heart meant, kill your opponent.
The gladiators were hero's to the crowds and enjoyed celebrity status and occasionally they would meet their match and a new champion would emerge.
These gladiator fights usually took place at the end of the days games.
