So this is another thing the Romans did for us ! Will we have to give it back come Jan' 31st ? smile
Tom Wilson: I think they probably have enough of their own smile
Jolies mosaïques avec de belles couleurs.

There is much to like about this, but I think the sheen really finishes it off well, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ray

The Romans are to be much admired, for just about everything they did really..
Tom Wilson: Indeed, that's true - it's a pity the empire didn't last for another 400 years!

It's amazing how well the colour has lasted (we'll, assuming that these are the original colours!)
Tom Wilson: Yes, it's the natural colours of the stone used.
It looks so fresh Tom
Tom Wilson: I guess that's because the stone keeps its natural colour and just had to have the dirt brushed off.

This must be quite nice to walk on in bare feet Tom, especially if it is heated from below.
Tom Wilson: I guess it would have been - the Romans certainly knew how to build a bath-house!
Lovely and old. It is well maintained too.
Tom Wilson: Oh yes, they take great care of their finds.
I remember seeing some fine mosaics like this at St.Albans (Verulamium)
the Romans were good at creating mosaics Tom....petersmile
