An archaeological identification survey was undertaken of a mountainous region to the south-west of Llyn Tegid (SH 814 310 centred), near Bala, North Wales from November 2011 to January 2012, by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) on behalf of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW) as part of the Uplands Initiative. The project comprised an initial archaeological desk-based study, followed by a field identification survey. The study area of Cwm Lliw covers an area of 14.26 sqkm of relatively rolling mountainous upland landscape of hills between the isolated valleys of Pennant Lliw and Cwm yr Allt-lwyd. Eight sites were identified by the desk-based study as being recorded within the HER and NMR, of which all were updated and five were given additional new NMR numbers. In total, a further 208 new sites were identified by the field survey, representing a substantial numerical increase in the number of sites within the study area.
