Description

The monument comprises the remains of a series of round huts that probably date to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). They are situated on a natural terrace on the SE slopes of Bodafon Mountain. The scheduled area contains four separate groups of huts, two enclosed and two unenclosed.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of Romano-British settlement. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
