BACAS - The Roman Baths Archway Project

Date Description
11 October 2018

Peter Davenport, Senior Historic Buildings Consultant, Cotswold Archaeology 
 

Earlier this year Cotswold Archaeology (CA) completed the latest phase of archaeological work for the Archway Project in collaboration with BACAS. This has included a laser scan and photogrammetric model of the entire space which has been the most ambitious and detailed piece of 3D modelling CA have ever undertaken and resulted in over 11,000 photographs and extremely detailed high resolution 3D models.

 

BACAS carried out a geophysical survey, re-excavation of earlier archaeological trenches and in the process discovered the oldest mosaic known at the Roman Baths! The work has been carried out prior to the construction of an impressive new heritage and learning centre which will ultimately reveal to the wider public hitherto hidden parts of the Roman bathing complex at Bath.
