The monument comprises the remains of a round barrow, a burial mound probably dating to the Bronze Age (c.2300 BC - 800 BC) and situated on the summit of a locally prominent promontory overlooking Traeth Llydan to the NW. The grass-covered barrow is roughly circular on plan and measures about 11m in diameter and 0.5m in height. The barrow was partially investigated in 1956 (Powell & Daniel 1956).
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric burial and ritual practices. The monument is an important relic of a prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of both intact burial or ritual deposits and environmental and structural evidence.
The area to be scheduled comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive. It is circular and measures 18m in diameter.
