Llwyn Bryn-Dinas facts for kids
Llwyn Bryn-Dinas from the west
|Location||Near Llangedwyn, Wales
|Area||3 hectares (7.4 acres)|
The hillfort has a single rampart, about 264 metres (866 ft) north to south and 204 metres (669 ft) east to west, following the contours of a prominent hill. The area is about 3 hectares (7.4 acres). There is a simple inturned entrance on the south-east.
There was excavation in 1983. It was found that the site was first occupied in the late Bronze Age, about the 10th–9th century BC; the defences were enlarged about the 4th–3rd century BC, during the Iron Age. Built into the rear of the rampart was an Iron Age smithy, for bronze-casting and iron-working, probably to serve the requirements of the settlement.
