Roman baths threatened by water
trefwoorden: Somerset - Bath - romeinse tijd - 3e eeuw - badhuizen
Emergency work is under way in Somerset after water leaks at Roman baths were found to be destroying an artefact more than 1,700 years old.
The water was seeping through a road outside the entrance to the Stall Street entrance in Bath, and destroying a third century cold plunge bath.
Roman remains beneath York Street, Stall Street and Kingston Parade were also found to be under threat.
Cobbles will be lifted and a damp proof course put in, with work expected to end by early November.
