Bath

The Roman spa of Bath, revived as a fashionable resort in the eighteenth century, features briefly in SARUM, and at some length as the scene of a scandal involving Fanny Albion in THE FOREST. (See also Jane Austen).




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first leap year in the modern sense was in 1752 in Britain, with the adoption of the Gregorian calendar by Britain and her colonies. This was not the first time leap years had been used; the Julian calendar used before 1752 had a simpler system of leap years, and The Islamic calendar Al-Hijra also has an extra day added to the 12th month Zul Hijja on leap years.
