Bath Episode 03 In and around the Abbey

Bath in medieval times

This look at life in medieval and early modern times in Bath centres on a visit to the Abbey and to the streets around it. Find out why the coronation of Edgar, in Bath Abbey in 973, was so crucial for English history (and for all coronation services in the thousand plus years since then) and hear what to look out for on a visit.  Learn too about daily life in the city long before the Georgians and their elegant manners changed things radically.
