On Tuesday 8 November, the Third Form visited the Roman Baths in Aquae Sulis (Bath), to accompany their studies of the Romans in Britain.
The students had an audio tour of the museum where they investigated the different types of Roman people who worked at and used the baths. They also learnt about the Goddess Minerva, to whom the Baths were dedicated. Beside the Central Pool the students had the opportunity to meet and talk to a Roman Centurion and his slave. As you can see from the photos – when in Bath, do as the Romans do... dab!
Our visit ended with a taste of the famous spa water, containing 43 minerals, which the Romans believed had great healing properties. Most of the students had a sip, but were in agreement that it tasted a bit sulphurous and unpleasant!
The students were well behaved and had an enjoyable morning. Thank you to Karen Lovett, James Adams and Geoff Andrews who came on the trip.
