The monument comprises the remains of a well preserved, large, substantially built round hut in an impressively complete form which lies on a slight shelf on the east-facing, rocky valley side of Afon Artro. The monument probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The hut circle is a large and substantially built example of its kind, approximately 9 metres in diameter internally with walls approximately 1.5m wide and surviving up to a height of 0.75m.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric domestic construction practices. The monument retains significant archaeological potential and there is a strong probability that structural evidence has survived, together with internal and external floor surfaces.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
