Colchester Archaeology Talks present: Roman Life – Bathing and Exercise

ONLINE TALK on December 10, 2020 at 19:30 – 20:30,  £4.75

Whilst not necessarily a daily occurrence, bathing either at home or at the public baths was an important activity. Many elements of the modern spa can be recognised, from treatment rooms to swimming pools and saunas. The public baths also offered the opportunity to exercise prior to bathing, with ball games, wrestling and even boxing being very popular.

Tickets are only £4.75, click here to buy: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/roman-life-bathing-and-exercise-tickets-128472549855
