Craig’ London blog> Craig’s Guildhall Art Gallery review  I’ve written a review and posted some photos on my blog

One of the London's best-kept secrets can be found in the basement of the Guildhall Art Gallery, because that's where you'll find the remains of the old Roman amphitheatre. And for three months from July a gladiator will be returning to his old stomping ground.

The Guildhall Art Gallery have got hold of a skull that was uncovered during excavations in the Walbrook Stream. It is believed to be the skull of a gladiator from around the year 150 AD, and shows evidence of substantial head trauma (so presumably he lost!).

The exhibition will also look at how the gladiators were represented in Londinium, and tries to imagine what their life must have been like, alongside the lives of the visitors who came to the amphitheatre to watch the games.
