Water, History & Style. Bath: World Heritage Site

Image of Water, History & Style. Bath: World Heritage Site



In December 1987 UNESCO bestowed its greatest honour on Bath
when it declared the city a World Heritage Site for its outstanding
cultural heritage – including its natural thermal spa waters - and
landscape setting. Bath was one of the first ten sites to be recognised
in the United Kingdom and received its award along with Blenheim
Palace, Hadrian’s Wall and the Palace of Westminster.
Published to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Bath’s inscription
as a World Heritage Site, Water, History & Style is a celebration of
Bath’s Outstanding Universal Values. With informative and lively
text by Bath scholar Dr Cathryn Spence Water, History & Style
explains the significance of UNESCO’s award in the context of
Bath’s economic, social and architectural history. The 25 locations
and themes are richly illustrated with a wealth of fascinating historic
images representing Bath’s six millennia of human history
