Din Lligwy Hut Group, Anglesey

Din Lligwy hut circle is an ancient village site near the east coast of Anglesey, close to the village of Moelfre in North Wales dating from the Romano-British period. Excavation in the early twentieth century recovered coins and pottery, mainly of the third and fourth centuries A.D., showing that the enclosed settlement had been occupied during the later Roman period. The people who lived here would have been local Britons who lived in roundhouses but adopted much of the lifestyle of the invading Romans. Excavation has revealed a variety of buildings, including roundhouses and rectangular barns or workshops. Smelting hearths and iron slag found in some of these buildings suggest that the site was used for metalworking.
