Category: Enclosed hut circle
Traditional County: Caernarfonshire
An enclosed hut group containing at least 4 round huts and 1 rectangular hut. The enclosure is roughly circular, with a diameter of 34 m. The enclosing bank probably consisted of two orthostatic faces with a rubble core, but the orthostats have nearly all been removed (a few remain on the SW corner) leaving a rubble bank ?m wide and 1.5 m high on the N side, decreasing to 3 m wide and 0.8 m high on the S. The entrance may have been through the rectangular building on the S (11 m x 3 m), which is on a lower level than the round huts. All the internal walls are grass-grown banks. Another rectangular building may lie to the E of the enclosure, just outside the scheduled area, but its relationship with the enclosed site is not clear.
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.
