Humph.  TBA must not consider any non-Ancient to be a real place.

[My UK hat hangs at a plateglass that isn't Bath]

So there actually is a place called "Bath", and it has a real university?

I guess it's one of those new towns, like Milton Keynes.



Um, Bath is called Bath because. . . it is the site of a freakin' ROMAN bath.  You know, not a remake.  The real thing.  It is the coolest thing ever.

Are you sure it isn't a modern folly that is supposed to look old?  A government fake like the moonshot?

Wasn't Bath mentioned in Canterbury Tales? A quick Google says that it's been around since at least the 900's. (Actually, it says that it's been around at least as long as England has been.)

I must read a lot of Brit lit, as I knew that there is a Bath -- and that there long has been a Bath.  And somewhere in my memory is something about its naming is because it dates back to before England has been England, i.e., to Roman times, Roman baths.  Off I go for fun with Google to test my memory. . . .

You are correct about all of it. I just wasn't sure when, exactly, it got its name--although I knew it was nowhere near recently.

Yes, I see that others also posted that Bath is named for, well, baths. 

But testing my memory did take me to some marvelous websites, with lots of lovely history.  I am happy.

OTOH, I thought Milton Keynes was the guy who wrote an epic poem about the stimulus package.

Does this puppy look fake?  It has real steam and everything.  I am very dismayed to discover that the forumite who calls himself "US UK Prof" is only faking his UK-ness.

But this is a much more fun discussion anyhow.

In my own defense, I don't claim to know much about England north of Birmingham, and certainly not beyond Manchester.

Isn't Bath where Betty's Team Rooms are, though? Or am I thinking of Nora's wrinkled stocking?

This entire conversation is the oddest example of someone (as they would say in Bath, I imagine) taking the p*ss that I have ever seen.
