The monument comprises the remains of a defended enclosure, which probably dates to the Iron Age period (c. 800 BC - AD 74, the Roman conquest of Wales)and which occupies a significant location set above the confluence of the east and west Cleddau rivers. A bank and traces of a ditch enclose a fairly level, roughly triangular shaped interior between rivers cliffs, the entrance may have been on the east.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of later prehistoric defensive organisation and settlement. The site forms an important element within the wider later prehistoric context and within the surrounding landscape. The site is well preserved and retains considerable archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of evidence relating to chronology, building techniques and functional detail.
