The monument comprises the remains of up to three earthen or stone built round barrows or cairns, probably dating to the Bronze Age (c. 2300 - 800 BC) and located on the lower north east slope of Mynydd Carningli. There are no recent records of this monument and it may no longer be extent. Alternatively it may have been misidentified in the original record as there are other similar monuments in the vicinity.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The features are an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retain significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of both intact ritual and burial deposits, together with environmental and structural evidence. Barrows may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.

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