We may have been unable to visit the Roman Baths in person but we were able to explore the baths and learn about them in the virtual classroom. We were told all about the history of the baths, from when they were made, right through to when they were filled in with rubbish and then discovered again during the Victorian era.
We were shown objects that would have been used by the wealthier Romans whilst at the baths and we were invited to give our opinions on whether they were artifacts or replicas. Some of what we discovered left us questioning some of the choices the Romans made – face cream made from sweat, olive oil and body hair, for example! We really enjoyed the session and learnt a great deal!
