Bath's "Great Drain" to be inspected

Nearly 2,000 years after construction, the overflow from the Roman bath in Bath, England is going to be inspected. Archaeologists are excited at the prospect of discovering what Roman - and subsequent generations - threw down the drain.

The Great Drain, which was built in Roman times, helps prevent flooding in the city. Experts believe it is in good condition, but extensions constructed in later centuries are in need of repair. Now the entire drain will be inspected, allowing archaeologists, for the first time, to completely study the structure and its secrets.
