Billingsgate Roman House and Baths
The Roman baths at Billingsgate (a ward of the City of London on the north bank of the Thames) was discovered in 1848 during construction of the London Coal Exchange and preserved in the basement of the building. When the Coal Exchange was demolished in the late 1960s to make way for a wider road, further excavations of the Roman remains were carried out and the accompanying house discovered. The remains of the house and its bathhouse were preserved in the basement of the new building. Join this Expedition to explore the site and learn what it meant to take a bath in Roman Britain.
