Colosseum Blood Sports- how did they do it?

This PBS NOVA video explains the construction & the secrets of the colosseum.  See how they filled the massive structure with water to reenact sea battles & how they moved wild animals (lions & tigers & bears) into the ring for “blood sports”.  It is believed that up 11,000 animals were slaughtered in a season & possibly a million people were killed there during the time of its use.
