Short Street Roman Kilns

Mar 2, 2021

As Dilton Marsh History Society members will be aware, there has been little or no news to report over the past twelve months. However, I was reminded recently, by one of our members of the work by the  Bath and Camertorn Archaeological Society  on the Roman Kiln site  at Short Street, We were fortunate to have their assistance during  our  “Dig For Dilton“ project back in 2019.

While this report is perhaps quite detailed in nature, I thought it might well be of interest to show the  extended period of Roman occupation in our immediate area.

Let’s all hope that in the next couple of months the society can start to look forward to a more active period of looking into the history of Dilton Marsh.
