Much, of the scheduled area was excavated in 1980 and 1981 by Gwynedd Archaeological Trust.

The site proved to be extremely complex, providing evidence for Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age/Roman and Early Christian activity. Archaeological remains would appear to continue beyond the excavated area.
