Disarticulated human remains of forty Roman individuals were discovered, in 1988, beneath the site of Guildhall (London City). After re-examination, they may represent the first evidence of gladiators in ancient London!

At the time of their discovery, it was thought these skulls have originated from human remains washed out of burial sites by the Walbrook.

But now, 25 years after, Rebecca Redfern, a historian of the Museum of London, believes that these skulls are those of gladiators, brutally killed for the amusement of Roman audiences.
