    When Queen Anne went to Bath for a holiday in 1702, little did she know that she was starting a trend.  Over the next thirty years, Bath grew to become the most fashionable vacation spot in England.  Studying eighteenth-century Bath offers us a glimpse into the growth of a consumer society and the way it shapes people's view of themselves and of the possibilities that lie before them. 

This is a web site in process.  It brings together several different types of information, and it will continue to grow. 

This web site would not have been possible without the DePaul ATD Faculty Institute, along with hours of  help and encouragement from LoriLee Sadler, Vitaliy Bunimovich, Yosef Mendelson, and John Savery.  Many thanks to all.
