Site Notes

Vaughan/1850, 204: `In the parish of Llannuwchllyn upon the south bank of the river Lliw on a high craggy rock are seen the walls of an old castle called Castell Corn Dochen. Over against it is Caer Gai built in the time of the Romans as many suppose by the ancient coin of the Emperor Domitian found there of late...This place was called Caer Gai, of Cai Hir ap Cynyr, that was King Arthur's foster-brother who dwelt there. But by what name it was called in the Roman time, I know not'.

Westwood/1876, 168: `LLANNWCHLLYN, near Bala. -- At Caer Gai, on the north side of the small river Lliw (supposed by Camden to have been a Roman station from the number of coins found there)'.
