Roman Gladiators were NOT meat-eaters!

Meat and fish played no part in the diet of Roman Gladiators! They ate a plant-based diet made up largely of pulses, grains, vegetables and fruits.¬† This is confirmed not only from historical documents but also from chemical analysis of the gladiators’ skeletal remains. The gladiators were vegans!
