A farming community from the past

Around 20 of an estimated 50 original buildings survive, mostly as circular hut foundations. It’s not difficult to imagine what these stone-built huts would have looked like, topped with their conical thatched roofs. To help paint an even clearer picture of the past, some even have traces of internal divisions, storage areas and furniture such as benches and basins of stone.

How old are these? Originally thought to date from the times of the Roman occupation of Wales (Roman coins and pottery have been found here), they are in fact much older, reaching back to prehistoric times. What we see before us are the remains of a sizeable agricultural settlement in use for many generations.

Check out our 3600 reconstruction of how people may have worked the land. As a bonus to visitors, there’s a spectacular mountainside setting with far-reaching sea views.
