The city of Bath was first established by the Romans in 43 AD as a spa resort and was given the Latin name, Aquae Sulis, "the waters of Sulis." However, many believe Bath was known about before that. The Romans built baths and a temple on the surrounding hills of Bath in the valley of the River Avon around hot springs, the only natural hot springs in the United Kingdom. Edgar was crowned King of England at Bath Abbey in 973. Bath became very popular as a spa resort during the Georgian era. This led to major expansion of the city and left Bath with a rich heritage of Georgian architecture. Today, there is even more to Bath than the great Roman baths. There's ice-cream to eat, stores where you can shop and all sorts of musicians and things to see and hear. Use this book as a learning tool when you go to Bath, and see what you can add to this book. Take time to insert your own pictures of what you find inside and outside the Roman baths. You can get to Bath by train from London, rent a car to get there, or go on a sight seeing tour. Here is a secret. (Don?t tell anyone we told you.) You can even see Windsor Castle and Stonehenge on the way to bath (or from Bath) if you like. No professional photographs are allowed inside the baths, so this surprise also awaits your visit. This book was photographed by John D. Weigand, and written by award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan in a way the youngest of kids can learn and understand. It is also a perfect complement to your mom?s coffee table!
