The city gets its name from the famous Roman baths in the town. The Romans built the baths as part of a spa, in the year 43 BC. They called it Aquae Sulis, which means "The waters of Sulis". Sulis was a local goddess.
Bath became a city in 1585, when Queen Elizabeth I declared it to be one.
Bath has two universities and several schools and colleges.
