Hands on with history at The Roman Baths

The Roman Baths

Students will become mini-archaeologists and mini-curators as they participate in learning sessions linked to their school curriculum at the Roman Baths.

Opening summer term 2022, the new school and learning experience at the Roman Baths in Bath will offer an educational visit like no other.

Learning history where it really happened, students will handle original artefacts and have a go at being an archaeologist in the new Investigation Zone.

This pioneering learning space is set in an atmospheric underground environment amidst real in-situ Roman remains.

The area offers a simulated archaeological dig where students will excavate, investigate and record archaeological materials.

A unique learning app featuring Alex the Archaeologist will also guide them around the subterranean site.

The Investigation Zone is part of the Roman Baths Clore Learning Centre, opening in Term Five.

It offers a stress-free visit in state-of-the-art facilities, including two fully equipped classrooms, a dedicated lunchroom and nearby coach drop off.

Connecting with history where it really happened, a trip to the Roman Baths is an exceptional opportunity to explore the amazing things the Romans left behind.

From the gilded bronze head of the goddess Sulis Minerva to piles of Roman coins, a mosaic floor and evidence of life in Roman Bath.

Learning amongst the remains of one of the greatest sites of the ancient world, students will handle original Roman artefacts and stand on pavements the Romans walked on over 2,000 years ago.
