Roman Bath

In ancient times, Roman baths were heated through a series of underfloor channels and ducts through which hot water circulated, heated by coal or log furnaces to the desired temperature and humidity levels.
The characteristics that set Roman baths apart from other thermal baths were the special climatic conditions caused by the temperature and humidity levels they used.
With this relationship between temperature and humidity we can view the Roman bath as a hot bathing experience somewhere between a modern sauna and steam bath.
