Recent archaeological finds in Bath suggest the "luxury housing estate and out-of-town shopping centre may need to be added to the long list of what the Romans did for Britain."
David Musgrove, the editor of the BBC's History magazine, which reports the discovery in its January issue, said: "Bath was as much of a property hot spot then as it is now. The evidence suggests that Romano-Britons developed luxury, des res housing on the edge of the centre."

Good thing for the Romans - before them, the Britanni were painting their arses blue and sacrificing their kids to brutish gods. Who knows what could have come of things...

You know, I've always wanted to go to Bath, but I think I would be disappointed if I were not met at the train by some friendly guide proffering a robe, a rubber duckie, and an armload of towels. Then I'd be led off to a lovely giant bathtub all my own, full of hot water and bubbles.
I think you have to go to Japan for that.
