Europa Nostra UK, in association with the City of Bath World Heritage Site and the European Historic Thermal Towns Association (EHTTA), is holding its 2017 meeting in Bath from 13th until 15th September. The European Historic Thermal Towns Association (EHTTA), certified by the Council of Europe, is for the first time an official partner of the event.
This year’s Duncan-Sandys Lecture will be given by the distinguished Oxford archaeologist, Professor Sir Barry Cunliffe.
The theme of this day-conference is unsurprisingly the European Historic Spa Towns for which the organisers have assembled an array of distinguished and internationally celebrated speakers, including EHTTA Scientific Comittee’s president, Mr. Paul Simons.
Bath, a member of EHTTA, is known for its ensemble of Georgian buildings, including the fine Assembly Rooms, and for its Roman Baths, the venue of the main Conference Dinner. A walk around town and an outing through the English countryside to see the delightful small City of Wells, with its famed Cathedral, will allow to participants to gain a context for our activities. The organisers have also made arrangements for participants to have the opportunity to enjoy the facilities of the Thermae Bath Spa.
