The monument comprises two well preserved hut circles, dating to the Iron Age or Romano-British periods (c. 800 BC - AD 400). They lie on the gently sloping upland pasture of Caer Mynydd within an extensive early field system which represents part of a wider relic landscape.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric domestic life and social organisation. Its significance lies in the quality of the preservation and the site retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of structural evidence and associated archaeological features and deposits. The huts' association with the adjacent field system and indeed with other broadly contemporary monuments nearby, gives the site an additional group value.
