The settlement patterns of north Wales do not appear to have been affected by the events of the late pre Roman/Iron age in the south east of Wales. Many sites continue into the Roman period without significant changes, although little material is available to support this view.
Structural alterations to defences were sometimes required dues to the threat of Roman activity in the area during the campaigns of 50 & 51 AD trio possible alterations to the southern ramparts of Dinorben in Denbigh during period V may record this.
Hill Forts like Trer Ceiri continue with densely occupied interiors, with a large no of Enclosed Farmsteads of around 5 acres of terraced fields indicating that the social groupings are probably 1st cent or earlier.
Castell Odo on the peninsula appears to have been slighted during the Roman period around the last of the lst cent. This could tie in with the construction and occupation of Pen Lystyn about 63 AD.
