In about 1880, Roman baths built about AD 85 were discovered in the city of Bath, England. 

                                      

The ruins are fairly extensive.  The complex was built at the site of mineral hot springs.

The top of the Roman ruins extend up to only about five feet above the water level.

                                      

The columns, balcony, and statues above that were all built about 1890.

However, the tile floors and drainage system were all a part of the original find.

                             

Included in the ruins were dressing rooms, washing rooms,
a large pool for swimming, a small cold pool, and a sauna.
