The monument consists of a vicus, a district, suburb or quarter of a town or village adjacent to a fort, with the lowest legal status accorded to a built up area, dating to the Roman period (1st to 5th century AD). This is an open, undeveloped area, located to the south of Caersws Roman Fort, in which recent excavations have revealed well preserved and deeply stratified Roman occupation.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of Roman military and urban organisation. The monument forms an important element within the wider context of the Roman occupation of Wales and the structures may contain well preserved archaeological evidence concerning chronology, layout and building techniques. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
