Bronze Age (?) round house on Carningli

This is one of the round house remnants on Carningli, close to the western end of the summit rocks.  There are several others as well, not as well preserved as this one -- so there was certainly quite a community living here.  The assumption is that these features are from the Bronze Age, although there is an Iron Age Hill fort and village on the summit itself -- and we can't discount the possibility that these structures continued in use during the Iron Age, either as dwellings or as animal enclosures.

The tradition of using abandoned dwellings for keeping animals is as old as the hills, and of course continues in rural Wales to this day.......
