Here’s a new one for everyone: Saturday we spent the day around Hadrian’s Wall again and Lauren gave us a fabulous presentation in the bathhouse at the Roman fort at Chesters. Here’s everyone inside the niches of the apodyterium (that’s the changing room in the bath):
So, Lauren was inspired with part of her presentation by a trip we took to the fort at Housesteads on a rainy day last week. In the museum they had a replica of a certain essential piece of gear. This would sometimes be used in a part of the bath, but also in a freestanding building as well. So, what is Lauren looking at rather dubiously?
