] But I don't recall ever discussing the group bathing. Would the sexes have bathed together as they are shown in the film? Anyone know anything about the customs of the Roman Baths in JA's time?
Cheryl, your request has gone unanswered and lonely for two days, and I feel compelled to say something, but the answer is that I don't know much at all! Sorry!
This is what I do know
1. The real Roman Bath wasn't discoverd until after Ja's time. The georgian one was built in georgian time.
2. Most people's cure involved drinking the stuff(and it tastes disgusting, by the way!)
3. I think, with no real proof, that they would have had the different sexes bathe at different times.
That's it, I'm afraid!Sorry!(maybe I'll find a bit more one of these days!)
