Abstract: The existence of the St. Cuthbert's Roman mining settlement on the Mendip Hills, probably first noted in the 1720's, was confirmed in the 1950's and 60's by surface finds and limited excavation. This paper records the extent of the site recognised on aerial photographs, and attempts to interpret its function and relationship to the other Roman mining sites and finds in the Priddy and Chewton Mendip area. The location of finds from the site are listed as an appendix.
