Our present-day fascination with combat sports hearkens back to the Roman Empire when as many as 80,000 bloodthirsty spectators would gather to watch the wild beasts and gladiatorial games. While the bribe of bread and circuses wouldnt work today we cant be so easily distracted that we would ever overlook whats happening in Washington its hard to ignore the 2004 discovery of the worlds best-preserved (and mostly decapitated) gladiator burial ground in northern England. A new exhibit coming to The Houston Museum of Natural Science, Gladiators: Heroes of the Colosseum, offers a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of those ancient warriors through original armor, archaeological objects, 3-D modeling of the Colosseum and an all-hands-on-deck lecture on April 4 about those decapitated remains, complete with combat demos, Roman bites and a photo booth with gladiator gear ($18 to $24).

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 13. Continuing 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. March 13 through September 14. 5555 Hermann Park. For information, call 713-639-4629 or visit hmns.org. $12 to $30.
