Archeologists have unearthed remains of a bathhouse in the ancient city of Aizanoi in western Turkey. Talking to Anadolu Agency, Zerrin Erdinç, deputy head of the excavation team, said that the bathhouse appeared to have been from 4th century B.C. It consisted of three parts that provided cold, warm and hot bath facilities. 'The structure and other details reveal that social classes were using them as public baths in ancient times,' said Erdinç, who is also an academic at Dumlupınar University in Kütahya. Romans could spend a whole day in the baths, as they were also seats for communal gatherings. Men and women used the baths at separate hours. 'There is also striking similarities between the ancient and modern-day baths,' she added. The remains of the bathhouse show that it had various sections meant for different purposes, like undressing, bathing, sweating, resting and eating. 'These required separate rooms with specific facilities, which the Romans had built painstakingly to accommodate different purposes,' said the archeologist.
