The monument comprises the well-preserved remains of a compact enclosed hut circle settlement, which probably dates from the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). It comprises two hut circles and a small sub-rectangular enclosure or yard set within a larger enclosure defined by a rubble and earth bank. The site lies on sloping ground 600m NE of Pen y Gaer hillfort, which was probably in contemporary use.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement practices. It is an important relic of the prehistoric landscape and retains significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of environmental and structural evidence, including preserved internal and external floor levels. The proximity of the site to the hillfort increases its significance further.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
