Looking down to the North Shore from the Great Orme.
Close by is an information board, and below is the English worded version of the information that’s written on it:
‘You are now standing within a Late Prehistoric hillfort. Around you are the remains of over 60 roundhouses surrounded by three or four defensive ramparts (earth and stone banks).
About 3,000 years ago the Bronze Age was coming to an end and the Iron Age was beginning. This was a time of climatic change and social tension. A deteriorating climate reduced the amount of land available, and is thought to have resulted in increased competition for good land and the construction of defended settlements. No proper excavation of this site has yet been made so very little is known about the inhabitants of this hillfort.’
