Gaer, Llandygwydd 2009

Gaer is a circular, earthwork enclosure c.45m-diameter. Its name and character suggest a defensive site, but there is no surface evidence for an entrance or surrounding ditch. A geophysical survey demonstrated the presence of both. It is possibly a medieval earthwork castle, but more likely to be an Iron Age defended homestead.
