Abstract

In April 2005 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a programme of field evaluation at Brimsmore, Yeovil, Somerset (NGR ST 534 178, centred). The evaluation was commissioned by CgMs Consulting to provide information in support of a planning application and Environmental Statement submitted to South Somerset District Council. A trenching strategy targeted on the results of a geophysical survey of the site produced evidence for a late Roman landscape comprising a farming settlement located on the upper part of Vagg Hill, with a ditched field system on the south-facing slope of the hill. A series of earthworks visible in the south-eastern part of the site were demonstrated to be spoilheaps and quarry hollows associated with 18th century stone extraction.
