Archaeological investigations between 2012 and 2015 at RNAS Yeovilton uncovered evidence of Late Prehistoric and Romano-British agricultural activity.
An extensive Romano-British field system, found across all three excavation areas, is associated with a previously identified farmstead to the north. The farmstead and field system were aligned with a trackway that linked the settlement with the Roman road to Ilchester; a ditch pertaining to this was recorded during the excavations.
Two late Romano-British inhumation burials and several pits, some containing large quantities of pottery and charred plant remains, were also present in the area adjacent to the farmstead. Less well-preserved gullies defining fields or paddocks are tentatively dated to the Bronze Age; and a four-post granary structure was dated to the early Middle Iron Age and is likely associated with a contemporary settlement known to the east.
