The monument comprises the remains of an isolated hut circle that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). Mynydd Caregog Hut Circle measures 60ft in diameter from crest to crest with a bank 12ft wide and 2ft high. There is the suggestion of an external ditch.

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.
