Dissertation Proposal

My dissertation will be on heating and fuel issues in the Roman baths, and I am hoping to use the Forum Baths at Pompeii and the Forum Baths at Ostia as test samples, since they are well preserved. I have not been to the Pompeii Forum Baths since they were refurbished and wondered if anyone out there had any opinion on how much they had been altered. Thanks.

Have you thought about looking at the Suburban Baths at Herculaneum? They are incredibly well preserved too and there's even wood there...
Although currently closed to the public for conservation works, I can help apply for permission to access them if useful.
