ODAS’ Michael Meekums talks about the Roman Bathhouse
The Bath House was excavated by Bromley Museum and ODAS members between 1971 and 1975. It appears to have been in use in Roman times from around AD 270 and fell out of use around AD 400. Nearby, there are pagan Anglo-Saxon graves dating from AD 450 to AD 550.
