Rainwater from the nearby Mendip Hills heated up deep in the earth rises to this outlet at a rate of over a million litres every day. The Celts found it first, and built a shrine to Sulis here, but it was the Romans who brought style to the place. After conquering, they wasted little time deifying the place to the Roman Minerva, and over three centuries and some heavy-duty engineering, built up a grand bathhouse around it. Curse tablets found in the area suggests the presence of pranksters who’d filch the clothes of the bathers. After the Roman era, it fell into disrepair and was revived periodically by the British.
The museum currently displays objects (usually coins or tokens) that were thrown into the Bath and the marvellous architecture and statuary of this ancient establishment. You’ll have plenty of photo opportunities so make sure you use them. After your foray into this little bit of history, if you want a taste of the real thing, head over to the Thermae Bath Spa nearby.
