The Roman Baths

Bath is a city in the Somerset County of England. A World Heritage Site, this ancient city is famous for its Roman Baths. Below are photos of  the Roman Bath from a bygone era. The complex also included the temple of Sulis Minerva; spooky curses that were written have been recovered from the Spring as the photos will tell.

To share an interesting quote from the Wiki article on  Bath , “Archaeological evidence shows that the site of the Roman Baths’ main spring was treated as a shrine by the Iron Age Britons, and was dedicated to the goddess Sulis, whom the Romans identified with Minerva; however, the name Sulis continued to be used after the Roman invasion, leading to the town’s Roman name of Aquae Sulis (literally, “the waters of Sulis”).”

Let the photos do the talking…
