Moel Faban Settlement

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


Burnt Stone Mound Moel Faban.

There is a typical burnt stone mound beside a stream on the north east of Moel Faban.

The mound is horse shoe shaped, surrounding a rectangular patch of rushes which indicates the position of the boiling trough. The whole is enclosed by a low bank.

This may have been the cooking place for the occupants of the round houses but maybe earlier Bronze age.

Meat was cooked in water brought to the boil by throwing heated stones into the trough.

Good to see local insight beginning to fill in the gaps of an intruiging area. Nice one. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN
