"Join us on this incredible journey in time to a city of the Roman Decapolis and witness a live event that has so far only been the subject of epic films.
...A HIPPODROME WITH FULLY ARMED LEGIONARIES, GLADIATORS AND ROMAN CHARIOT RACES"
Ben Hur for real.
The WallStreet Journal has an article, recently, about how this sport is being revived for real! There was, for instance, a race and re-enactment, in Paris, that drew 300,000 people!
Amazing times we live in!
