Carn Caca (Melin Court Brook) Marching Camp
Marching or Temporary Camps
Roman Marching-Camp in the parish of Llantwit-juxta-Neath/Llanilltud Neath. It was not until 1974 that a medium-sized camp was discovered on Air Photographs about 2½ miles east-north-east of the large camp at Blaen-cwm-Bach. The site lies just south of Blaen-cwm-Caca in the south bank of the Melin Court Brook and has a long association with the history of the area. The Glamorgan County History records a Bronze-Age ring cairn, sometimes known as the ‘Henllan stone circle’, an Iron-Age double-ditched drystone enclosure containing at least one substantial round-house, also two possible Roman signal stations on Resolven Mountain.
