Llanaelhaearn: towards Treír Ceiri
Treír Ceiri is probably the best preserved hillfort in England and Wales and was occupied during the Roman era. Within its 13 feet high, 15 feet thick walls, 150 huts provided a wild refuge from the pax romana. The Romans had a base at Caernarfon, 15 miles away, but Treír Ceiriís height and steep approaches and maybe its remoteness meant that it was never slighted by their army. With the departure of the Romans it was abandoned [Source: Michael Senior, Hillforts of northern Wales, Gwasg Carreg Gwalch, 2005]
