Bath And North East Somerset
BATH AND NORTH EAST SOMERSET (commonly referred to as BANES or B"> The Great Bath at the Roman Baths . The entire structure above the level of the pillar bases is a later reconstruction. The archaeological evidence shows that the site of the Roman Baths ' main spring was treated as a shrine by the Celts , and was dedicated to the goddess Sulis , whom the Romans identified with Minerva ; however, the name Sulis continued to be used after the Roman invasion, leading to Bath's Roman name of _Aquae Sulis _ (literally, "the waters of Sulis"). Excavations carried out before the flooding of Chew Valley Lake also uncovered Roman remains, indicating agricultural and industrial activity from the second half of the first century until the third century AD.

Unitary Authorities Of England
UNITARY AUTHORITIES OF ENGLAND are local authorities that are responsible for the provision of all local government services within a district. They are constituted under the Local Government Act 1992 , which amended the Local Government Act 1972 to allow the existence of counties that do not have multiple districts. They typically allow large towns to have separate local authorities from the less urbanised parts of their counties and provide a single authority for small counties where division into districts would be impractical. Unitary authorities do not cover all of England. Most were established during the 1990s and a further tranche were created in 2009 . Unitary authorities have the powers and functions that are elsewhere separately administered by councils of non-metropolitan counties and the non-metropolitan districts within them
