This week we continued our study of the Romans. We learned all about the Roman Baths and how they were built and operated. Living in Europe gives us a unique opportunity to visit Roman ruins. We took a field trip this week to the spa town of Baden-Baden, Germany to visit preserved ruins from a military Roman Bath. The museum is small but it was still possible to see the heating systems they used as well as the drainage systems. The museum is really well thought out and we definitely enjoyed our visit.

There were guide-phones to use in English and a short animated video of the assumed layout of the building. We spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying Baden-Baden. We hope to return some day and take advantage of the thermal baths in town!
