Share With Your Students the History of Nimes, France DVD
The Romans built an amphitheatre at Nemausus (later Nimes") in 70 AD. Where gladiators once fought now the French have bullfights and shows. Nimes has a long history, and these Roman ruins saw it all. A replica of the Coliseum, this well-preserved smaller version still contains many sections of the highest floors. At one time, people actually made their homes in this unique building that now hosts the Whitsuntide Feria shows for locals and visitors alike. A site like no other in France—an important historical landmark in a town full of history. ©2007. 10 minutes. Color. English. Not rated.
