In Bath, on the first day, we visited royal crescent, then split up and the girls looked at dresses or something, and we went to the museum of Bath works, then we got back together and looked at the roman baths. Royal crescent had all sorts of interesting things and ideas, like servants quarters and masters rooms with secret servant doors. It had all sorts of portraits of lots of people…. At the Bath works museum, there were lots of old machines J and metal gears and junk on shelves J and I thought of what I could make… with those… parts… … and then we went to the Roman Baths. At the baths, there were lots of different sections, the sacred pool, (scorching hot) the grand pool, (hot) the east baths, (really hot) and they had these hot floors (hot) that were hot enough to burn your feet without sandals. We couldn’t go into the pools because they were untreated, coated with lead, and 46ยบ C. The Romans didn’t know that lead was poisonous around year 0. They threw curses etched into a piece of lead into the pool, mostly about stolen items. An example would be: Please have the person who stole my coat’s eyes poked out, and their arms ripped off and bleed eternally, unless they return it to your temple.
