    pieces of a puzzle

    A Reconstruction of a 2nd century C.E. temple dedicated to the god Sul - this place was then called "Aqua Sulis". Perhaps more fragments will eventually be found!

    Roman Baths

    Certainly worth a morning looking around the interesting Roman Baths. Quite expensive however worth the money if you are interested in the history of Bath and the roman influence on the town.

    Water rises from the "sacred spring" at a rate exceeding a million litres a day and at a temperature of 46C.

    The lower level of the baths

    Just a warning -- there is a mostly good, but interminable museum between the upper and lower views of the baths. If you are short of time, don't get hung up there!

    Another view of the lower level

    What we see today is the Great Bath -- lined in lead and 1.6 meters deep. It was originally covered by a vast barrel vaulted hall.

    These well preserved Roman baths are one of the primary reasons for Bath's World Heritage designation. The main pools are restored and there is also a museum of the Roman artifacts.

    The Baths are possible due to Hot Springs. The water from these hot springs were rumored to have magical healing powers.
