Roman walls unearthed under city
An exhibition has been set up in Bath to show some of the discoveries that have been made as part of the city's Southgate redevelopment.

Archaeologists have been on the site of the old shopping centre while diggers carry out work on the 360m project to build new shops and housing.

Various discoveries have been unearthed including part of the Roman and Medieval city walls.

All the finds are on display at a new visitor centre on New Orchard Street.

It will display information about the work that archaeologists have been carrying out since February when this part of the redevelopment of Bath started.

As well as the Roman and Medieval walls, archaeologists have found the possible location of the Horse Bath and Bum Ditch shown on John Speed's map of Bath in 1610.
