The main training schools for gladiators were in Capua, south of Rome. Some gladiators were volunteers (mostly freedmen or very low classes of freeborn men) who chose to take on the status of a slave for the monetary rewards or the fame and excitement. Anyone who became a gladiator was automatically infamis, beneath the law and by definition not a respectable citizen. A small number of upper-class men competed in the arena but they constituted a special, esoteric form of entertainment

The Eagle.........a great movie about a Roman soldier whose father went missing, along with 5,000 men, who were in his command in the Nothern part of Britian. The Eagle, which represents all Romans was lost in the process, & his son (Tatum Channing) goes to recover it so as to restore his father's honor! A great movie that made me cry..........
