The monument comprises the remains of an extensive barrow cemetery, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c.2300 BC - 800 BC) and situated within open moorland and enclosed pasture on Cae-glas Hill. The barrow cemetery comprises at least 5 grass and heather-covered barrows. The barrows range in size from 9.5m to 11m in diameter and stand up to 1.1m in height.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual. The monument is an important and unusual relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of both intact burial or ritual deposits and environmental and structural evidence, including buried prehistoric land surfaces.
