Archaeologists hunt for hot baths
Archaeologists are to dig up a set of Roman baths believed to be at a site in Swindon, Wiltshire.

The latest excavation at Groundwell Ridge started this week, hunting for a set of what used to be hot baths.

A Roman villa was first found at the site, in the north of the town, during housing construction in 1996.

In 2004, the team found a range of cold baths dating back 1,600 years. They hope to add to their collection with the latest five-week dig.

During the past nine years, English Heritage and Swindon borough Council have worked together to buy the land and fund excavations.
