After a long hiatus since September 2011, some news from the Billingsgate Bath House project!

Since January 2012, Applied Heritage Management students from the Institute of Archaeology, UCL have worked on the project, exploring the management and conservation opportunities at the site. Under the direction of Tim Williams and Kirsty Norman, students explored the site and constructed the first Statement of Significance and mini Management Plan for the site. The exercise was designed to give students an inside knowledge of the challenges of management planning, as well as discovering the future opportunities for Billingsgate Roman Bath House.

Building upon the conservation work carried out by UCL students and Nimbus Conservation in 2011, the 2012 UCL Billingsgate Bath House Project aims to explore the future of the bath house, as well as opening the site for public viewing. The site will be opened this year during the Festival of British Archaeology in July (14th/15th), and London Open House in September (22nd/23rd).

As always, the best way to find out about all the latest news of work at Billingsgate is to join the Facebook group, or follow us on Twitter. The links are on the front page.

The 2012 Project has been developed with the generous support of the Museum of London, Corporation of London and English Heritage.
