The monument comprises two very similar and unusually well-preserved huts dating from the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). They lie on a level saddle below a low hill in an area of upland pasture between the flanks of Moel Hebog and the Aberglaslyn pass.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric domestic life and social organisation. The importance of this small settlement lies in its completeness and the lack of any later use or disturbance. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of structural evidence and associated archaeological features and deposits. The monument also has group value for its locational association with similar sites nearby.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
