Nether Compton

In 1989 a hoard of 22,500 Roman coins were found here. A geophysical survey was done by Bath and Camerton Archaeology Society.
Investigation of this site started on 9 July 2014 and continued until Sept 2015. We appear to have a Romano-British enclosure with typical black burnished ware pottery. With evidence of further settlement up the hill dating to late 3rd and early 4th Century which is roughly contemporary with the coins in the hoard.
