The Ty Mawr Huts are on Holy Island, Anglesey to the
west of Holyhead. Also known as the Cytau'r Gwyddelod, or Irish Huts.
They are estimated to be settlements of the Iron Age and later, of the
1st millennium BC/AD. This is one of the best known of the early
settlements on Anglesey. The remains consist of 10 large, round stone
huts scattered along the hillside and interspersed with smaller
rectangular buildings which are partly below ground. The round stone
huts are about 7 m in diameter with thick, low walls. There is evidence
of intermittent human occupation from the middle Stone Age, Neolithic,
and Bronze Age, but the visible buildings in the eastern group belong to
the iron age, and where used up to the 6th Century.
Directions: In Holyhead take the South Stack road. There is a Car Park
on the left .5 mile after a right hand turn.
