Description: Moel y Gaer (Welsh for "bald hill of the fortress") is an Iron Age hill fort located on a western spur of the Clwydian Range, near the village of Llanbedr, Denbighshire, Wales.

The defensive works at Moel y Gaer consist of a double bank and a ditch with two entrances, one on the west and one on the northeast. There is an additional bank to the northeast, across the ridge connecting the hill to the higher ground leading to Moel Famau. A 2007 survey of the site reported that the defensive structures enclosed an area of 2.63 hectares (6.5 acres), with a possible annex including another 0.26 hectares (0.64 acres); it also identified 15 roundhouse platforms within the enclosure, along with possible evidence that the inner rampart was faced with stone at some time during the site's occupation.
