Entry Name: Hut Circle Settlement in Cwm Gelli Iago (North)

Source ID: 1491
Cadw Legacy ID: CN255

The monument comprises the remains of an unenclosed settlement of at least seven stone footed round huts that probably date to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The huts are clustered around a rocky knoll on the east side of Cwm Gelli Iago.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric domestic construction practices. It is in very good condition and retains significant archaeological potential. There is a strong probability that structural evidence has survived, together with internal and external floor surfaces. The significance of the site is further enhanced by its proximity to other contemporary settlements in Cwm Gelli Iago.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
