Dinas Fach
Dinas Fach
'Dinas' meaning city, 'Fach' meaning small. City is an unusual name for a rural/ coastal area but there are a few Dinas names around. The meaning could be inferred as meaning a 'town' or camp, but not as we know them today.
In the Iron Age the coastline was dotted with well defended promontory forts. Dinas Fawr is referred to as Iron Age in the Historical Environments Report but was described by the Royal Commission for Ancient Monuments in Wales as " An extensive hog-back promontory where a bank and ditch has been observed (RCAHM Pembs 1925)but not subsequently confirmed. Hollows on the promontory are thought to represent small-scale copper mining rather than occupational features".
