The scholars travelled back in time this week to Roman Bath and the remarkably preserved remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world. They took great interest in the impressive hot spring with its ritual links and admired the whole bath complex. With its hot rooms, warm rooms, cold rooms, hypocausts and more it really is a must-see attraction. That our lads were so keyed-in to the whole art of bathing, ritualistic or otherwise, is a little surprising though. Usually, you mention the word bath or even shower to these same boys back here at school and they seem to think you come from a different planet.
