Bath Quays Waterside: an 18th Century Spa Town

On Wednesday September 12, 2018
Cai Mason, Senior Project Officer, Wessex Archaeology

This talk will focus on the archaeology of urbanisation, industry and the poor in an 18th Century Spa town.  It will give an insight into the results from excavations at Bath Quays and an explanation of how John Strahan’s plans for an elegant suburb for the wealthy turned into one of Bath’s most notorious slums.
