Gladiator amphitheatre and training school unearthed near Vienna

A team of archaeologists has discovered the remains of a Roman amphitheatre, on par with the Colosseum in Rome, near Vienna, Austria. The site, they believe, was also a training school for gladiators.

Members of the team used through-ground radar to determine the size of the size before excavation began. The "sensational discovery" was recently announced by the Carnuntum Archaeological Park, but the announcement did not disclose the exact location.
