The Roman Baths’ Make a Posy Basket
Create your own posy basket!
This education pack from The Roman Baths looks at the history of posy baskets.
In the past, people used Bath’s hot springs to cure themselves of diseases. When people bathed in the hot spring they would often carry baskets with posies of flowers in them. The idea was that the smell of the flowers would take away the smell of the many unwashed people who were using the spring.
