The monument comprises the remains of at least five circular huts standing on levelled terraces, three of which open onto a single courtyard. This nucleated settlement stands on the south-east facing slopes of Mynydd Carnguwch overlooking the Afon Erch and probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400).
The monument has an impressive diversity of surviving structural features and is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric domestic life and social organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of structural evidence and associated archaeological features and deposits.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
