The monument comprises a well preserved example of an unenclosed round hut settlement that probably dates to the Iron Age or Romano-British period (c. 800 BC - AD 400). The settlement consists of three closely grouped huts set near the banks of the Afon Croesor, and a fourth isolated hut above the main group on a higher shelf. Also present are a number of associated enclosures or yards. The huts have been constructed using different methods and two are examples of rare and unusual subcircular huts. It is possible that the settlement could have been occupied over a long period of time.
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.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
