Rome's only Wonder of the world, the Colosseum, is its most famous building. This amphitheater was built to provide violent entertainment for Rome's restless populace, beginning in 80 AD (CE). Gladiator contests, as well as sacrifices of Christians and animals, made it infamous, but it represents the Roman engineering genius, with an intricate network of arched entrances, ramps, elevators, and passageways, built around a central arena, covered in sand to absorb blood, or even in water for staged battles between ships. Aligns with McDougal Littell's World History: Ancient Rome and Early Christianity.
