Caer Leb - Artists Impression

Just down the road from Bodowyr is this large rectangular earthwork consisting of a double bank and ditch construction measuring roughly 60 metres by 50 metres. Some have speculated that it dates from between 200 AD - 300 AD as a brooch from that period was found at the site. It could be then that Caer Leb is the remains of an outer defensive structure that surrounded the circular and rectangular huts of a Romano-British settlement - although current thinking suggests that the site is earlier and actually dates from the Iron Age.
