The monument comprises the superimposed foundations of two non-contemporary hut circles that probably date to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400) and a later cairn containing a stone cist. Excavations have shown this to be a well-preserved, complete and complex site of considerable archaeological interest. The site demonstrates a complicated constructional history indicative of long term use and continuity of occupation. Further, less well understood settlement sites are situated in the vicinity.
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 significance of the site is further enhanced by the presence of the other settlement sites in the vicinity.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
