Mound of Paveisininkai with Settlement


The mound is located on the top of a separate hill,on the peninsula of Veisiejai Lake. The hill is surrounded by a lake and a swamp. Here you can see the top of the hill, upper, defensive and lower parts of the settlement, the lake and its other shore. Archeological research has shown that there was a burnt burial ground on the hill before the mound was installed. The embankment was made in two times. The first embankment was 1.6 m high, topped with stones. The exterior of elevated embankment was reinforced with clay and stones.
