Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance because of its potential to

add to our understanding of prehistoric defensive settlement. The demonstrable presence of surviving internal buildings suggests that

the site will contain good evidence for prehistoric house

construction and domestic organisation. The importance of the site is further enhanced by its association with the wider landscape of prehistoric settlement in and around the Garleton Hills.
