Ruins of Roman gladiator school found in Austria
Archaeologists in Austria say they have discovered a large, well preserved school for Roman gladiators.
The remains of the school, at a site east of the modern capital, Vienna, were found using radar imagery.
The school was part of a Roman city which was an important military and trade outpost 17 centuries ago.
