London's important Roman amphitheatre was excavated in the 1990s; its remains are displayed in the Guildhall Art Gallery.
A timber amphitheatre, built c AD 74, included evidence of the eastern entrance, arena palisade, seating bank and associated drains. Shortly after AD 120 it was rebuilt with masonry foundations and walls, associated with new timber stands. By the mid 4th century the amphitheatre had been abandoned.
The excavated evidence allows conjectural reconstruction and comparison with other British amphitheatres. Significant finds include an early 2nd-century AD dump of glass cullet, lead curses from the arena surface and samian pottery with gladiatorial motifs.
