About a dozen men from a nearby village construct the Roman bath.
Most are local farmers who tend olive groves, grow grapes to make raisins, or tend small flocks of sheep. During the summer, many of them work as laborers for the Sardes Archeological Expedition. On NOVA's bath, they work seven days a week to keep to the tight building schedule. They only take off a few hours on Friday afternoon, the Muslim Sabbath.
At the end of two weeks, the foundation is built and the walls already stand.
