Scroll back into Bath’s past with our BRLSI Discovery Trails smartphone app!
Everyone knows about Bath, the Romans, and the city of Jane Austen’s time. But did you know about the Jurassic creatures found here? Or that Bath was once considered the cradle of English geology? Or even that many great scientific discoveries were made in this city?
Let ‘BRLSI’s Bath Discovery Trails’ smartphone app, designed around the great museum collection at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, introduce you to a Bath that you didn’t know existed.
Download the app, set your best foot forward, and then scroll on to step back in time with a series of walks around Bath’s world heritage sites.
Click here to read the BBC interview with our Collections Manager, Matt Williams, about the 160-million-year-old Jurassic crocodile featured in the App and on display for the first time at Bath Royal.
Thanks to funding from The Art Fund, the head and jaw of the crocodile, which is yet to be given a species name, are featured in the Bath Discovery Trails app, under the The Railway Leviathan walking trail section.
The National Lottery Heritage Fund is also supporting Bath Royal to use digital media to reach new audiences for the App, as well as their other programmes.
