Year 9 Latin and Classics Visit to Bath

Posted: 05/10/18

Year 9 Latin and Classics students marvelled at the remarkably preserved remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world when they visited the Roman Baths at Bath.  The girls explored the complex, viewing the steaming spring and the remains of the ancient baths and temple. 

Among other artefacts, the girls admired jewellery, silver pails and vicious curse tablets – all dedicated to the Romano-Celtic goddess Sulis Minerva.  They each selected an object to research and write a poem or short story about and so deepen their knowledge about Roman Britain.  These pieces will be entered into the ‘Artefact to Art’ Competition run by Leicester University.  Braver students finished off their visit by tasting the spring water – perhaps hoping for a cure from Sulis.
