Entry Name: Enclosed Hut Group North East of Caer Mynydd
Scheduled Date: 14 December 1994
Source ID: 285
Cadw Legacy ID: CN225
Schedule Class: Domestic
Category: Enclosed hut circle
Traditional County: Caernarfonshire
A sloping, circular enclosure which is cut back into the hillside slightly and has a terrace on the down-slope side; it seems to have been walled all round but there is little left of the wall. There is probably the remains of two or three hut circles along the S side, and a trackway approaching an entrance near these is visible.
The dominant feature is a length of bank W of centre. It is curved but not enough to be part of a hut circle, and stands much higher than the hut remains. It is possible, perhaps even probable, that it is not contemporary with the enclosure, but from a later period.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
