Opis produktu:

Almost every Roman site in Britain seems to have had its baths. They needed to be strongly built and to a large extent were constructed below contemporary ground level. As a result the remains of Roman baths have resisted demolition and damage by the plough. We can easily imagine how, and in what environment, the Romans and their slaves bathed. Bathing establishments are easily recognised, as are th materials used in their construction. The purpose of this book is to explain how Roman baths came to be built, how they were constructed, how they were used, and how they worked.

Tony Rook is a building technologist and an Extramural Tutor in Archaeology, a Member of the Institute of Field Archaeologists and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries. His first degree was in Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics. After six years in building research and ten as Head of Science in a secondary school he entered the London Institute of Archaeology, where he researched Roman baths for his Master of Philosophy degree. He has been an enthusiastic independent archaeologist since as a boy in the 1940s he joined a team excavating bomb sites in Canterbury. He has directed the Welwyn Archaeological Society in the field since 1960. His many reports include that on Dicket Mead, the Roman villa whose baths he successfully preserved in a vault under the AI (M) motorway at Welwyn, Hertfordshire.
