The Roman Bath Houses

Following the Arbeia project I was taken on by Tyne and Wear museums to produce some reconstructions of the bath house at Arbeia for inclusion on a CD-ROM which was co-produced in Spain and Portugal. The CD highlighted similarities in Roman architecture and culture on the Atlantic fringes of the Empire. One room from the bath house at Segedunum Roman Fort was also included in the project. A sample video from the CD-Rom can be downloaded Here .

This image shows the Atrium of the baths and Praetorium. The corridor ahead leads to the Commanding Officer's personal residences (an impressive built reconstruction of which also exists at the site). The entrance to the baths is just off to the right of screen.

This image shows the cold room (frigidarium) at Arbeia. These were often decorated in a maritime theme and some excavatory evidence of the cherub-like designs has been found on site.
