Today Bath is famous for the Roman Baths which were discovered in 43 AD during a time when the Roman Empire was expanding. The Romans unlike the Celts were the first to discover the hot springs of this little town where only a temple existed deserted by the Celts many years ago. The Romans added to the Celtic Temple in honour of their goddess of wisdom and war, the temple was named Sulis Minerva. Local stone and lead found in the Mendip hills were used to trap the hot springs so they could be utilized by the Roman people.
