The Colosseum, the greatest arena of the ancient Roman world, still stands in Rome, Italy, nearly 2,000 years after its construction. Engineering the Colosseum studies how ancient designers put the structure together, what kinds of events were held there, and how modern conservationists are protecting and restoring the building today.
