How did gladiators live

for report

Report as

Gladiators lived by fighting both men and wild animals. They were able to do this because of the training that they received and also the weapons and helmets given to them. The fighting was usually done at the arena and the spectators were allowed to watch the fight. Read more details at http://www.murphsplace.com/gladiator/gladtimes.html.

Terribly, they lived a life of kill or be killed, forced to fight in a ring with something or someone they had no quarrel with, solely for the enjoyment of a crowd.

Gladiators lived a hard life... but in ancient times it was tough for just about everyone! Most gladiators were slaves that fought for entertainment. The movies would have you believe that they fought for their freedom, but that was extremely rare. Most fought until they were killed by other gladiators, or animals, or whatever strange and exotic ends the elite had in store for them. There were those however, that volunteered to fight. There was good money in it, and they were celebrated like rock stars. A starving slave was likely no match for a well fed, trained soldier....
