Many Americans will be surprised to read the Romans 
controlled Great Britain from 43 AD until 410 AD

The Romans named their Great Britain province Britannia,
which now refers to a female helmeted warrior carrying a trident,
personifying Great Britain or the British Empire

It is shocking to me how large the Roman Empire was,
with remnants still prevalent around this island

One fine example is in the beautiful town of Bath,
approximately 100 miles west of London

The city was first established as a spa town by the Romans
and popular again during the Georgian era (1714 - 1837)

Healing spring captured in a Roman bath

Another historical tidbit-
the first king of a united England, King Edgar, was crowned here in 973 AD

Bath Abbey

Novelist Jane Austen lived in Bath from 1801 to 1806,
using it as a setting for two of her novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion

UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987,
Bath has secured itself as a popular tourist destination for years to come
with its protected beauty and history

The countryside isn't too shabby either :)

Hello Spring :)
