2. Two mounds, circular cairns of earth and stones, much ploughed down, with irreguar shallow pits at the centres indicating robbing.

Excavated by Savory in 1965. By 1982 the contiguous mounds were still visible, the larger 21m by 18m and 0.3m high, the smaller a low ground swelling 10m across and 0.1m high. But by 1989 they had been virtually ploughed out. The field in question was under the plough, the positions of the mounds marked by low ground swellings.

3. Now visible as a cropmark ring-ditch on 2013 Welsh Government vertical aerial photographs taken during July.
