It is impossible to say exactly under what circumstances plumbing appeared. There is a legend that a primitive man returned from hunting and was so tired that he decided to rest in a small hole on the seashore. When the tide began, it filled with water – so, in fact, the first analogue of the bath appeared. The man dug the same one in his home and used it for its intended purpose. The first evidence of the existence of baths was discovered by archaeologists in India – devices appeared about 5 thousand years ago.
The cult of water was especially manifested in ancient Rome. Huge bathrooms were present in many houses, and baths with pools also existed. They were distinguished by real chic, decorated with precious metals and stones. Such terms were very popular, they could accommodate up to 2300 people at a time.
