About Course

History and teachings
The history of Bath is intrinsically linked with the natural hot springs that the city is founded upon. The first shrine at the site of the hot springs was built by an Iron Age tribe called the Dobunni, who dedicated it to the goddess Sulis (who they believed possessed healing powers). In 43AD Britain was invaded by the Romans and by 75AD they had built a religious spa complex on the site, which later developed into a bathing and socialising centre called Aquae Sulis. Now restored and open to the public, teaching sessions are offered  for school trips which focus on Roman daily life, investigating historical sources, religion and belief, Latin language, and life in Roman Britain.
