Moel Offrwm (Lower Hillfort)


Being only 0.5 acres in area, and built on a small prominent rock, this fort did not have much room for a settlement, but due to its natural defences and its high wall, it would have been easy to defend. Evidence has been found for a single six metre diameter roundhouse within the fort, so it would only have housed a handful of people. During excavations between 1926 to1928 a bronze ring was found in the rubble of the rampart, along with some Roman occupation period pottery pieces. This hillfort can be visited along with Moel Offrwm (Upper Hillfort), for they are only about 0.5 Km apart.
