Trust : Gwynedd
Community : Arthog
NGR : SH63521213
Site Type (preferred type first) : Roman HUT CIRCLE
Legal Protection : Scheduled Ancient Monument

Description :
A possible hut or small enclosure of the late prehistoric or Roman period. The natural scatters of stone which occur across the slopes above Cyfannedd make a definitive interpretation of this site impossible. Enough remains however to distinguish two stretches of tumbled walling which encompass a roughly circular area. <1>
