New report: Diving Deep at the Roman Baths

In January 2018 BACAS undertook a geophysical survey under the vaults under York Street, Bath, just to the south of the Roman Baths Great Bath. There is believed to be a deep Roman drain passing underneath this area, but we found no direct evidence.

The Roman Baths asked if we could have another go, so last month we returned, and our report is now available.
