Bath, UK Roman Baths Museum
The most fascinating and important attraction in England's city of Bath are the Roman baths, ancient ruins from 2000 years ago. The center of Bath was built on top of the original Roman baths on the site of a natural hot spring, an ancient geological feature that has been bubbling for millennia. A comprehensive museum has been built on the site incorporating many of the original Roman structures along with thousands of artifacts in a fascinating display that reveals how very civilized they were 2000 years ago. The museum's main feature is the large bathing pool which originally had a roof but now has an outdoor terrace that you can walk all the way around. Be sure to enjoy the different angles looking into the pool across the rooftops of the city and at the tower of the adjacent Bath Abbey. http://tourvideos.com/

The stories behind the dresses and the choice of colour, cut or style can tell us much about Alexandra, Mary, Elizabeth, and Margaret, and how they chose to present themselves as royal women.

Stiff Bodied Gown Doll  - 1769-1771 - Bath Fashion Museum
THIS VIDEO IS COURTESY OF THE BATH FASHION MUSEUM AND SOMERSET COUNCIL. A rare glimpse of a fashion doll from the 1760-1770s featuring a Stiff Bodied Gown with silver lace trim. The bodice part of the gown is cut very similarly to a pair of stays and the train similar to the Mantua. It was worn for High Court wear here in the UK - for example weddings and coronations.

The Museum of Savage Beauty: The 'Bell Jar' dress
Senior Costume Mounting Specialist Lara Flecker describes mounting the Alexander McQueen 'Bell Jar' dress. Natural Dis-tinction, Un-Natural Selection, Spring/Summer 2009. http://www.vam.ac.uk/museumofsavagebeauty/ Transcript: I work in textile conservation and I was responsible for mounting this dress for photography and also for the exhibition afterwards. It’s probably the most sparkly costume we’ve ever had in our studio at the V&A; it literally hurts your eyes. Not only that but it’s also one of the heaviest costumes we’ve had and for this reason we needed to take a lot of care both handling and mounting it on a mannequin. You would think that actually dressing clothes on mannequins is quite straight forward but actually it’s much more complicated than it looks. In this case, the dress is meant to look like a Victorian bell jar so we had to help create that shape, and we do this by applying padding to the torso of the dress stand that it was going on to help create the bodice and support the bodice and then also an additional skirt support that helps create that amazing bell jar skirt. The dress is covered in Swarovski crystals, which is why it’s so heavy and we were extremely lucky that it didn’t actually require any conservation because often beaded things you find that some of the beads are coming off and have gone missing but in this case we were very lucky that it was in very good nick.

Roman Baths And Museum in Bath, England
http://www.TaoJourneys.com Terry Hodgkinson aka "wandering ninja" explores the old Roman Baths and artifacts in Bath England. "It was interesting to see how the Romans were so particular to make the baths here just like back home. After spending the better part of the day looking around the museum we stepped out and there was a visiting African dance tribe performing just outside the museum" - Terry Background: The Roman Baths complex is a site of historical interest in the English city of Bath. The house is a well-preserved Roman site for public bathing. The Roman Baths themselves are below the modern street level. There are four main features: the Sacred Spring, the Roman Temple, the Roman Bath House and the Museum holding finds from Roman Bath. The buildings above street level date from the 19th century. The Baths are a major tourist attraction and, together with the Grand Pump Room, receive more than one million visitors a year, with 1,037,518 people during 2009. It was featured on the 2005 TV program Seven Natural Wonders as one of the wonders of the West Country. Visitors can see the Baths and Museum but cannot enter the water. An audio guide is available in several languages.The water which bubbles up from the ground at Bath fell as rain on the nearby Mendip Hills. It percolates down through limestone aquifers to a depth of between 2,700 metres (8,900 ft) and 4,300 metres (14,100 ft) where geothermal energy raises the water temperature to between 64 °C (147.2 °F) and 96 °C (204.8 °F). Under pressure, the heated water rises to the surface along fissures and faults in the limestone. This process is similar to an artificial one known as Enhanced Geothermal System which also makes use of the high pressures and temperatures below the Earth's crust. Hot water at a temperature of 46 °C (114.8 °F) rises here at the rate of 1,170,000 litres (257,364 imp gal) every day, from a geological fault (the Pennyquick fault). In 1983 a new spa water bore-hole was sunk, providing a clean and safe supply of spa water for drinking in the Pump Room. http://www.InnerOuterYou.com

In 1983 a new spa water bore-hole was sunk, providing a clean and safe supply of spa water for drinking in the Pump Room.[4]istoryThe statue of King Bladud overlooking the King's Bath carries the date of 1699, but its inclusion in earlier pictures shows that it is much older than this.[5] The first shrine at the site of the hot springs was built by Celts,[6] and was dedicated to the goddess Sulis, whom the Romans identified with Minerva. Geoffrey of Monmouth in his largely fictional Historia Regum Britanniae describes how in 836 BC the spring was discovered by the British king Bladud who built the first baths.[7] Early in the 18th century Geoffrey's obscure legend was given great prominence as a royal endorsement of the waters' qualities, with the embellishment that the spring had cured Bladud and his herd of pigs of leprosy through wallowing in the warm mud.[8] Roman useThe name Sulis continued to be used after the Roman invasion, leading to the town's Roman name of Aquae Sulis ("the waters of Sulis"). The temple was constructed in 60-70 AD and the bathing complex was gradually built up over the next 300 years.[9] During the Roman occupation of Britain, and possibly on the instructions of Emperor Claudius,[10] engineers drove oak piles to provide a stable foundation into the mud and surrounded the spring with an irregular stone chamber lined with lead. In the 2nd century it was enclosed within a wooden barrel-vaulted building,[6] and included the caldarium (hot bath), tepidarium (warm bath), and frigidarium (cold bath).[11] After the Roman withdrawal from Britain in the first decade of the 5th century, these fell into disrepair and were eventually lost due to silting up,[12] and flooding.[13] The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle suggests the original Roman baths were destroyed in the 6th century.[14]About 130 curse tablets have been found. Many of the curses related to thefts of clothes whilst the victim was bathing.[15] This collection is the most important found in Britain.RedevelopmentPhotograph of the Baths showing a rectangular area of greenish water surrounded by yellow stone buildings with pillars. In the background is the tower of the abbey. The Great Bath — the entire structure above the level of the pillar bases is a later construction. The baths have been modified on several occasions, including the 12th century when John of Tours built a curative bath over the King's Spring reservoir and the 16th century when the city corporation built a new bath (Queen's Bath) to the south of the Spring.[16] The spring is now housed in 18th-century buildings, designed by architects John Wood, the Elder and John Wood, the Younger, father and son. Visitors drank the waters in the Grand Pump Room, a neo-classical salon which remains in use, both for taking the waters and for social functions.

Places to see in ( Bath - UK )
Places to see in ( Bath - UK ) Bath is a town set in the rolling countryside of southwest England, known for its natural hot springs and 18th-century Georgian architecture. Honey-coloured Bath stone has been used extensively in the town’s architecture, including at Bath Abbey, noted for its fan-vaulting, tower and large stained-glass windows. The museum at the site of the original Roman-era Baths includes The Great Bath, statues and a temple. Bath is in the valley of the River Avon, 97 miles (156 km) west of London and 11 miles (18 km) south-east of Bristol. The city became a World Heritage Site in 1987. Bath became part of the county of Avon in 1974, and, following Avon's abolition in 1996, has been the principal centre of Bath and North East Somerset. The city of Bath became a spa with the Latin name Aquæ Sulis ("the waters of Sulis") c. AD 60 when the Romans built baths and a temple in the valley of the River Avon, although hot springs were known even before then. Bath Abbey was founded in the 7th century and became a religious centre; the building was rebuilt in the 12th and 16th centuries. In the 17th century, claims were made for the curative properties of water from the springs, and Bath became popular as a spa town in the Georgian era. Georgian architecture, crafted from Bath stone, includes the Royal Crescent, Circus, Pump Room, and Assembly Rooms where Beau Nash presided over the city's social life from 1705 until his death in 1761. Many of the streets and squares were laid out by John Wood, the Elder, and in the 18th century the city became fashionable and the population grew. Jane Austen lived in Bath in the early 19th century. Further building was undertaken in the 19th century and following the Bath Blitz in World War II. The city has software, publishing and service-oriented industries. Theatres, museums, and other cultural and sporting venues have helped make it a major centre for tourism with more than one million staying visitors and 3.8 million day visitors to the city each year. There are several museums including the Museum of Bath Architecture, Victoria Art Gallery, Museum of East Asian Art, and the Holburne Museum. The city has two universities: the University of Bath and Bath Spa University, with Bath College providing further education. Sporting clubs include Bath Rugby and Bath City F.C. while TeamBath is the umbrella name for all of the University of Bath sports teams.
