Letocetum Roman Bath and Mansio

Letocetum Roman Bath and Mansio


Lichfield, United Kingdom (GB)
Letocetum is the ancient remains of a Roman settlement. It was an important military post and posting station near the junction of Walling Street, which was the Roman military road to North Wales. The Romans came to Letocetum and established a fortress in 50 CE.

The remains that at visible today are of a Roman bath house and mansio. The settlement developed with successive bath houses and mansions built to serve the official travellers as well as the growing civilian population. The structures were built sometime in 130 CE once the location ceased military functions and instead became a civilian settlement.
