The company is working with experts from Bath and North East Somerset and English Heritage to ensure the discovery, to the west of the former factory buildings, is safeguarded for the future.
Nigel Holland, managing director of Taylor Wimpey Bristol, said: "As a responsible builder, Taylor Wimpey undertakes archaeological assessments on all new developments to ensure that any historic findings from the site are treated in the most appropriate way.
"The initial survey revealed some interesting archaeological findings that otherwise would have remained unknown.
"We are fully committed to treating the site appropriately and are working in conjunction with Bath & North East Somerset Council and English Heritage to safeguard the surviving remains for the future.
"We have also agreed the final scope of further evaluation work to be undertaken within the southern part of the factory site."
