AN OPEN day was held at the Roman Bath House situated on the outskirts of Prestatyn last weekend.

Held on March 18, visitors were treated to a whole host of exciting activities, including making Roman-inspired art out of modelling clay, with colouring in available for the younger attendees.

There were also artefacts available for viewing, which included some of the items that were found during the excavations.

These included a broach, both sheep and cow bones that are dated to be almost 2,000 years old and jewellery, including beads.

The original tiles which sat on the roof of the bathhouse were also on show, as well as bits of pottery which were used by the Roman Legion that bathed there.

The Roman construction is now managed by Denbighshire County Council and countryside rangers were at hand to explain further information to the attendees.

Councillor Win Mullen-James, lead member for local development and planning, said: “The Roman Bath House site is a hidden gem, with a rich and genuinely intriguing history.

“I am glad to see this event was enjoyed by all who attended.”
