Tre'r Ceiri Virtual Tour
The spectacular Iron Age and Romano-British hillfort of Tre’r Ceiri sits on the eastern-most hilltop of Yr Eifl, Llanaelhaearn on the Llŷn Peninsula. It is one of the best-preserved hillforts in Britain and a protected ancient monument. Hillforts were gathering sites: they were places for settlement, food storage, and ceremony, and they provided a central focus for communities who lived within these landscapes during the first millennium BC and the first half of the first millennium AD. The hillfort is enclosed by an impressive stone wall, with two main entrance-passages, and up to 150 roundhouses and rectangular structures are located inside. The inhabitants of the hillfort respected an earlier Bronze Age burial cairn, which sits on the hill summit.
