About

The worship of the Celtic Goddess Sulis and the Roman Goddess Minerva gave rise to the cult of Sul-Minerva at the ancient springs situated in Southwest England. A visit to the site summons up a variety of underground imaginings – dark, steaming pools, slowly dripping water and faster running streams, ancient supplications, sacrifice, curses and prayers, fertility and healing.
