On the back cover:

 

Almost every Roman site in Britain seems to have had its baths. They needed to be strongly built and to a large extent were constructed below contemporary ground level. As a result the remains of Roman baths have resisted demolition and subsequent damage by the plough. The uses of most rooms on many Roman sites can only be guessed at, but baths are an exception. We can imagine how, and in what environment, the Romans and their slaves bathed. Despite great variation in plan, bathing establishments are easily recognised, as are the characteristic materials used in their construction. The purpose of this book is to explain how Roman baths came to be built, how they were constructed, how they were used, and how they worked. There is a gazetteer of sites where baths can be seen.
