Bath is one of England’s loveliest cities. But before it became associated with upper-class gentility and Jane Austen, it was a Roman spa town–and before that, a Celtic healing shrine to the native goddess Sulis.
Visit the modern day city and look below the surface. You’ll find Roman lead pipes, hot springs, temple offerings … and maybe a curse or two. Follow Arcturus’ footsteps. But be careful of the water …
