Shapwick village, Somerset

Shapwick is a village on the Somerset Levels, in the Sedgemoor district of Somerset. It is situated to the west of Glastonbury.

Shapwick is the site of one end of the Sweet Track, an ancient causeway dating from the 39th century BC. In 1998 a hoard of 9,238 silver denarii (the second largest hoard ever found from the Roman Empire, and the largest in the United Kingdom) was discovered in the remains of a previously unknown Roman villa near Shapwick. Following a Treasure Inquest in Taunton, the hoard was valued and acquired in its entirety by Somerset County Museums Service for the sum of £265,000. It became known as the Shapwick Hoard.

The parish of Shapwick was part of the Whitley Hundred.
