A group of outpatients with chronic diseases have begun a course that will explore two thousand years of history and wellbeing at the Roman Baths.
Course tutor Sue Walker from Bath College and David Baker from the Roman Baths have teamed up to explain the similarities between how the Romans supported their health and wellbeing in Bath more than two thousand ago and practical solutions for the patients of today.
Coordinated by Lindsey Braidley, Learning and Participation Manager at the Roman Baths, the group have begun to explore modern ideas and knowledge, as well as historical facts, archaeological features and treatments over the years.
Sue said: “There are still places for anyone interested. It’s a fun mixture of experiential, creative, reflective tools and activities in the wonderful surroundings of the recently restored World Heritage Archaeological Site and the Clore Learning Centre.”
Members of the course have had the chance to explore parts of the site not normally accessible to the public.
Course member Paul said: “It was amazing to find out similarities with how the Romans supported their health and wellbeing here in Bath over 2000 years ago and how we can apply their ideas to what we have been learning as patients.”
There is still time to join the course. Those interested should contact Adult Community Learning at Bath College via [email protected] or by calling 01225 328822.
