Ongoing work by Birkbeck, University of London, with Aberystwyth University and CHERISH to date the sand spit of Morfa Dinlle north of the fort (using OSL/Luminescence dating) suggests it only dates back to Roman times.This means that the sea – or salt marsh – may have extended from the northern foot of Dinas Dinlle (where the village is now) in the later Iron Age.Radiocarbon ages suggests the record extends back around 3,000 years and work is on-going to look at the vegetation and hydrological histories.The recently published UK Climate Projections (UKCP2018) provides the most up-to-date assessment of how the climate of the UK may change over the 21st century.

The hillfort and Second World War seagull trench on the northern slopes of the fort are protected as Scheduled Monuments by Cadw and the hill is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), designated for the importance of the glacial sediments, clearly seen in the exposed sections of till, sand and gravel in the cliff face.Map of Dinas Dinlle showing cliff top positions in 1900, 1917, 19.Most recently, erosion has been focused at the southern end of the fort where recent (February 2019) mass movement has taken place.These deposits result from ice re-advance from the Welsh ice cap towards the Irish Sea Ice Stream during deglaciation at the end of the last glaciation, known as the ‘Devensian’ period, some 12,000 years ago.It is hoped that direct dating of these sediments using Optically Stimulated Luminescence dating (OSL) should reveal just how long ago these sediments were laid down. It is thought to be later prehistoric (Iron Age) in date but chance finds of Roman coins, an intaglio (a carved gemstone worn in a ring) and pottery suggest occupation in the Roman period.
