Day Four Rome, Italy

The Colosseum

August, 2009

 

 

 

 

 

Note all the holes in the wall.  The blocks of stone were set with a key to the stone below and molten bronze was poured into each keystone to help set and stablize.  Over the years thieves have chipped into the stone to retrieve the bronze.
