In 1990 rescue excavations by the University of Birmingham, funded jointly by Showerings Ltd and English Heritage, revealed Romano-British roadside settlement beside the Fosse Way in Somerset. Located on the outskirts of Shepton Mallet, little more than a settlement locality and a pottery manufacturing site were known previously. Fosse Lane can now, however, take its place among the better known of the smaller towns and roadside settlements of Roman Britain. The excavations revealed evidence for a typical, agricultural and minor industrial centre, developing from the end of the 1st century AD and with its floruit in the 4th. Streets, plot layouts, plans of both timber-frame and stone buildings, and several small cemeteries were revealed. These last indicate some continuity of use into the 6th century, and the possibility of one Christian burial group.
