If you're interested in Roman history, then this is one for you. But beware - there's lots of photographs and lots of historical facts.
Before the Romans came, saw and conquered, a Celtic tribe worshipped the god they called Sulis at the hot springs in what we now call Bath. By around AD 60/61 the Romans had taken it over and recognising its curative properties set up the baths. The town was called Aqua Sulis - the Romans were remarkably tolerant of other faiths.
If you click on the picture it should take you to the album of photographs I took in the baths. Let your mouse hover over the caption to see all the writing.

I forgot to include this picture in the album, but it's too beautiful to miss out. It is made of gold and may have been part of a priest's head-dress.
I hope you've found this tour of the Roman Baths interesting. Next time we visit I'll try and take more photographs of Georgian Bath.
