The Geological Influences on the Redevelopment of the City of Bath and its Environs. — Dr Kevin Privett

10 April @ 14:00 - 15:30

Most people will know that Bath was founded in pre-Roman times around a series of hot springs. The spa city was developed significantly in both Roman and Georgian times, to become the World Heritage Site that it now is. How many people, however, understand how the local geology has influenced the development of the area? Kevin Privett is an engineering geologist and he will highlight some of the geological factors in the history of Bath and its environs, right up to the present era.
