On Tuesday 3rd October, Third Form students visited the Roman Baths in Aquae Sulis (Bath) to support their studies of the Romans in Britain. They had an audio tour of the museum where they investigated the different types of Roman people who worked at, and used the baths. At the side of the Great Bath the students had the opportunity to watch a Roman stonemason at work as he finished making a finial and to ask him some questions. Our tour ended with a taste the famous spa water, containing 43 minerals, which the Romans believed had great healing properties. Most of us agreed it tasted a bit “eggy”! The students enjoyed their visit and are now using the experience and what they learned from it to design and write their own Roman Bath House Guide.
Thank you to Karen Lovett, Geoff Andrews and James Adams for coming on the visit.
