Arbeia Conference 2015

Arbeia Conference 2015: Balnea, roman baths and bathing in the northern frontier zone: another side of military life.

The last few years have seen extensive excavations on bath-houses at Wallsend, Binchester and Chester-le-Street. The results have been spectacular, especially at Binchester where one of the best-preserved buildings in Roman Britain has been revealed. All these new discoveries will be described, together with new research on the baths at Chesters and at Bearsden on the Antonine Wall. Speakers will include Paul Bidwell, David Breeze, Nick Hodgson, Michael Lee, David Mason, Margaret Snape and Graeme Stobbs.
