Details

Jewry Wall was built in the second century and is one of the largest surviving Roman structures in Britain today. As Roman Britain fell into decline, the complex was left to decay and became buried underneath years of accumulated deposits and later buildings. In the 1930s, during excavations led by Kathleen Kenyon, the remains of the bath complex were finally revealed again as archaeologists rediscovered the surviving foundation walls of a series of rooms and furnaces.
