Colosseum
The team uses laser-scanning technology to uncover the engineering secrets behind ancient Rome’s Colosseum. Structural engineer Steve Burrows leads his team of laser-scanning experts to Rome on a quest to uncover some of the engineering world’s oldest mysteries of the Colosseum. Using cutting-edge 3D laser-scanning technology, the team wants to answer three questions. How did the Romans produce some of the most impressive gladiatorial games ever seen in Europe? How did the Colosseum’s mysterious roof really work? Finally, how does the mighty Colosseum compare, in state of the art computer testing, to the sports stadiums of the 21st century?
