Dinas Dinlle is an important prehistoric coastal fort that is being heavily affect by coastal and terrestrial erosion on a regular basis. The date of its construction is unknown but it is thought to have been built during the Iron Age where it may have been used as a refuge for defending against rivalling tribes and possibly the incoming Romans.
Approximately a quarter of the site is beleived to have been lost to erosion, taking with it important, unrecoverable archaeological remains including all of the western defences and a portion of the interior.
Dinas Dinlle will be carefully monitored and investigated by the CHERISH Project to unlocked more of site’s history before more is lost.
