The monument comprises the remains of five round barrows or burial cairns, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c.2300 BC - 800 BC). The barrows lie in an area to the northwest of Maen Achwyfan (FL005), and southeast of Berthengam village, and are identified alphabetically as Barrow A, B, C, D and E.
The monuments are of national importance for their potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual.
