Speech Water, Cleanliness, Nudity, Hygiene, Bubbles, Soap, Relaxation, warmth, solitude now these are just a few of the thoughts we associate with the term Bath or Bathing, Hello and good morning to my fellow classmates, peers and the lovely Mrs Gilbert, Ill be talking about the Ancient Pompeian and Herculaneum Baths and the process of bathing which is quite and very different to the contemporary bathing process. In Pompeii and Herculaneum the Bath-house was an integral part of day to day life and by far the most important for the majority of Romans. The Bath-houses served many features including a place to socialize, exercise and facilities for sport and recreation. In Pompeii there four main types of public Bath’s: The Strabian; The Forum; The Central
The site of the building was once occupied by and artificial lake. Like other amphitheatres, the coliseum was elliptical in shape. Semi-circle arches and barrel vaults were used in the building of the Roman Coliseum (Building an Empire and a Legacy). The large coliseum could contain approximately 50,000 people (Ms. Kratzert 03/18/12). Not only was the arena a masterpiece, but it was also had a lot of different activities that went on.
The Placenza pilgrim (6th century) wrote: You descend by many steps to Siloam, and above Siloam is a hanging basicilica beneath which the water of Siloam rises. Siloam has two basins constructed of marble which are separated each other by a screen Men was in one and women in the other to gain a blessing. In these waters miracles take place, and lepers are cleansed. In front of the court is large man-made pool and people are continually washing there; for at regular intervals the spring sends a great deal of water into the basins, which goes down the valley of Gethsemane (which they also call Jehosaphat) as far as the River Jordan. The Pool of Siloam was used by the Jews during the Feast of Tabernacle for their purification rituals.
Beautiful views add more romance for each movie. Lots of scenes in romance films use medium shots, due to the dramatic, dialogue focus of romance films. In One Day, Emma usually goes swimming every week , while she’s swimming in the pool, the camera shot transitions from a medium shot to a close-up, focusing on the whole of Emma’s body and face. In P.S. I Love You, when Gerry sings a song for Holly in a pub, the camera shot changes from the view of a few people in the pub to a close-up of Gerry and Holly’s faces when he kisses her.
These can be most easily defined and identified by each column’s capital. We continue to use these same designs today in our modern architecture. For example, the White House features Ionic columns.

Tiles, marvel stones, gold, crested china, silverware and crystal chandeliers were all imported from Europe to fit the taste of the rich. They have spent 12.5 million dollars to complete the building. The Plaza was a hotel back then as it is presently. However, many of the super rich lived in that hotel permanently. I said before that they were generations who lived in European styles, where they had butlers, maids, cooks, and many others who provided them a full service and a social gathering place.
Calcite is the main mineral in limestone rock. The acid dissolves the limestone and makes designs in the rock. Flowing acidy water can carve a cavern underground. The underground water moves the dissolved calcite and deposits in a different place. When the water leaks into the ground it may hang on the ceiling of the cave as a droplet.
A tunic that was too long and reached ankles was also unsuitable for men. Also, Roman tunics varied in details depending on wealthy that were held by their owners. Tunics were worn only in house, if I wanted to go out, I had to put a toga on. Toga was a piece of cotton material that was about 3 meters wide and approximately 6-7 meters long. It was very difficult to compose toga appropriately, so there were ‘special’ slaves who had to deal with it.
This was a main theme in Edo culture which inextricably associated sex with water. This is exemplified in Kitagawa Utamaro’s Lovers, from a shunga album Ehon hitachi obi, which has a screen in the background that depicts a figure experiencing an erection alongside a cascading waterfall. In some prints, the iconography of water was also present in the designs of the costumes and robes on the figures depicted.
