A detailed excavation report on the Shipton Mallet site excavated on the edge of the Mendip Hills in 1990. This presentation and interpretation of the information recorded by the Birmingham University Field Archaeology Unit reveals an important Romano-British roadside settlement that grew up towards the end of the 1st century AD, developed during the 2nd to 4th century AD, going into decline in the 5th century. This report looks at the sequence of the site, its buildings, structures, burials, its dating sequence, function and status as a settlement, trade and its regional context. Other sections report on the pottery finds, small finds, coins, building materials, human and animal remains.
