The monument comprises the remains of a large, impressive and largely intact burial cairn, probably dating to the Early Bronze Age (c. 2000-1500 BC). The monument consists of a turfed-over round cairn of stones, some 12.5m in diameter and 1.40m high. The site stands within 330m of the excavated Cefn Caer Euni kerb circle and ring cairn (dated by radiocarbon to c. 1400 BC).
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The monument is an important 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, together with environmental and structural evidence and preserved prehistoric ground surfaces below the monument. Cairns may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can be 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.
