It is hard to pinpoint exactly when plumbing first appeared, but there is a legend that a primitive man returned from a hunt and was so tired that he decided to rest in a small hole by the seashore, which filled with water when the tide came in. This man then dug a similar hole in his home and used it for bathing purposes. The first evidence of baths was discovered by archaeologists in India, appearing around 5,000 years ago.
The cult of water was especially prominent in Ancient Rome, with large bathrooms present in many homes and baths with pools also existing. These were luxuriously decorated with precious metals and stones and could accommodate up to 2,300 people at a time. Not only were they a place of hygiene, but also of relaxation, and holidays were celebrated there.
