In my last blog I made mistake, which I like to correct. When posting photographs, I like to add a link, some background information or a story in the same context. I falsely linked Roman chariot racing and Colosseum.
So now it is time to show the right place: Circus Maximus, or Circo Massimo in Italy. [I should copy the text from the previous blog about Ben-Hur and horse race arena, but maybe you can read it there.]
Just try to think how wild it has been, when two or four-horse, even ten-horse chariots have been rushing around the circus. A good descriptions about the dangers of this sport is here.
