At one time Wroxeter was the fourth largest town in Roman Britain with an estimated population of 5000 at it’s height.

In the mid-19th century excavations at the site revealed the public baths.  The baths were constructed between AD 120 and 150 to a standard plan that was used throughout the western part of the Roman empire.

Bathing played a very important place in Roman life, not only for cleanliness but also for socialising, meeting friends, doing business, exercising and playing games.
