In its time, it was capable of holding 50,000 spectators, and it still holds its capacity today. Although the structure has undergone many changes, it remains a magnificent example of roman engineering. Here are some Facts about the Colosseum for kids that you might not have known before.Did you know that the Colosseum had tunnels under its roof? The arena was large enough to hold ten times the number of people who walked through it. Originally, the Colosseum housed animals and slaves. However, it was eventually used as a place to stage naval battles, gladiator fights, and hunting animals. In the Middle Ages, it was also used as a religious shrine and workshops. Its walls are made from limestone, while the floor is covered with travertine, which was mined from the town of Tivoli.The Colosseum was built to hold large events, and was named after the Flavian dynasty. It was built as a giant amphitheatre and was used as a theater during Roman times. However, after the collapse of the building in 217 CE, the Colosseum no longer served as a venue for gladiator contests. The structure became a Christian shrine, which is why you'll find many different types of statues in the building.
