Se­crets of Rome’s Colos­seum


Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Front Page -

Struc­tural en­gi­neer Steve Bur­rows leads a team of sci­en­tists and his­to­ri­ans to in­ves­ti­gate the engi­neer­ing in­volved in the con­struc­tion of the am­phithe­atre in the cen­tre of the city of Rome. Us­ing cut­ting-edge 3D laser-scan­ning tech­nol­ogy, they try to dis­cover how the Ro­mans pro­duced some of the most im­pres­sive glad­i­a­to­rial games seen in Europe, how the Colos­seum’s mys­te­ri­ous roof really worked and how the build­ing per­forms in state-of-the-art com­puter test­ing against sports sta­dia of the 21st cen­tury.
