I once read a book about 30yrs. ago about Ancient Roman entertainment and the Romans really were just as bloodthirsty as the so called peoples they conquered. Do you agree that the Gladiators who fought in the arena were in a lot of cases totally naked and when they were wounded with blood flowing all over the place the crowds were worked into a frenzy? The sight of blood covering the flesh must of really turned them on.
