Description

The monument consists of the remains of a road, dating to the Roman period (1st to 5th century AD). The road is well preserved and measures 150m in length, covering a boggy field on a prominent grss-covered agger measuring circa 10m wide and up to 0.5m high. Trail excavations in 1993/94 showed that the full sequence of a two-phase road constuction survives. The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of Roman military organisation/medieval transport systems. The monument forms an important element within the wider context of the Roman occupation/medieval settlement of Wales and the structure may contain well preserved archaeological evidence concerning chronology, layout and building techniques. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
