Iron Age

There are many Iron Age forts in Wales and several in this area. A pleasant one to visit is 'Y Gaer' at the side of a bridleway above Defynnog. It is on private land and it has not been excavated. Fine views are provided to the north and east.
It may have been used as a trading centre as a fine and partly-walled ancient roadway, Heol Cefn-y-gaer, leads to it from the North and South-West.
