SCHOLA ARMATURARUM POMPEIANAE Some of the best preserved evidence for gladiators comes from Pompeii, south of modern-day Naples, Italy. There’s the 22,000-seat amphitheater on the east side of town. Early excavators uncovered a trove of gladiator armor at a site on the edge of town that had been turned into a training facility and residence for fighters after an earthquake damaged the local gladiator school. Ancient Rome Fight Club | National Geographic
