Diving into history in Bath

History buffs in Bath are being given the chance to delve into the city’s Roman history.

A day course is being held at the Roman Baths, which will investigate the “special nature” of the venue and also explore the Roman culture and people.

There also will be illustrated lectures, guided tours and artefact-handling sessions.

The special day school takes place between 10am and 4pm on Saturday, January 23.

The event has been organised by Bath and North East Somerset Council and the University of Bristol’s department of Archaeology and Anthropology.

Councillor Terry Gazzard said: “Bath and North East Somerset Council is very proud of Bath’s Roman history.

“This really is a great opportunity to find out more about the unique position the site holds in Roman-British studies.

“Those who come along will also have the chance to see behind the scenes of a museum with a collection which is designated as being of national and international importance.”

The day school costs £36 – more information on the course can be found via the University of Bristol website.
