Y PIGWN Carmarthenshire, Wales.

Four Roman earthworks 6 km SE of the fort at Llandovery. I and II are marching camps, presumably of the period A.D. 47-77; both have internal claviculae. The areas are 16 and 10 ha. III is a small fortlet, probably used after the abandonment of Llandovery (ca. A.D. 160), and IV is a practice camp, probably built by the unit stationed at Llandovery.
