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.
