The Sweet Track, dating from the 39th century BC, is thought to be the world's oldest timber trackway and was once thought to be the world's oldest engineered roadway.
Many monuments, barrows and trackways exist. Coin evidence shows that the region was split between the DurotrigesDobunni and Dumnonii. The Iron Age tribe in Dorset were the Durotriges, "water dwellers", whose main settlement is represented by Maiden Castle. Ptolemy stated that Bath was in the territory of the Belgae but this may be a mistake.
At the time of the Roman invasionthe inhabitants of the entire area spoke a Brythonic Celtic language. Its descendant languages are still spoken to a greater or lesser extent in CornwallWales, and Brittany. There are villas, farms and temples dating from the period, including the remains at Bath.
Ham Hill probably had a temporary Roman occupation. The lead and silver mines at Charterhouse in the Mendip Hills were run by the military. The Romans established a defensive boundary along the new military road known the Fosse Way from the Latin fossa meaning "ditch". Salt was produced on the Somerset Levels near Highbridge and quarrying took place near Bath, named after the Roman baths.
The finds included a moderately large villa at Chew Park,  where wooden writing tablets the first in the UK with ink writing were found. The coins included two denarii from the early 2nd century and 8 miliarensia and siliquae all dating from AD to Wessex and Constitutional status of Cornwall After the Romans left at the start of the 5th century AD, the region split into several British kingdoms, including Dumnoniacentred around the old tribal territory of the Dumnonii.
The Western Wandsdyke earthwork was probably built during the 5th or 6th century. According to the Anglo-Saxon Chroniclethe Saxon Cenwalh achieved a breakthrough against the British Celtic tribes, with victories at Bradford-on-Avon in the Avon Gap in the Wansdyke in and further south at the Battle of Peonnum at Penselwood in followed by an advance west through the Polden Hills to the River Parrett.
However, according to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle this was destroyed 12 years later.

But sporadic Viking incursions continued until the Norman Conquestincluding the disastrous defeat of the Devonians at the Battle of Pinhoe. In King Alfred the Great trapped a Danish fleet at Arne and then drove it out; ships were wrecked at Studland. It is generally considered that Cornwall came fully under the dominion of the English Crown in the time of Athelstan 's rule, i.
However, inwithin a mere five years of Athelstan's death, King Edmund issued a charter styling himself "King of the English and ruler of this province of the Britons". Thus we can see that then the "province" was a territorial possession, which has long claimed a special relationship to the English Crown. Somerset played an important part in stopping the spread of the Danes in the 9th century.
Viking raids took place for instance in and at Watchet  and the Battle of Cynwit. King Alfred was driven to seek refuge from the Danes at Athelney before defeating them in at the Battle of Ethandunusually considered to be near Edington, Wiltshirebut possibly the village of Edington in Somerset. Alfred established a series of forts and lookout posts linked by a military road, or Herepathto allow his army to cover Viking movements at sea.
The Herepath has a characteristic form which is familiar on the Quantocks: Burhs fortified places had been set up bysuch as Lyng.
