Mound of Verstaminai II

Mounds

Verstaminai II mound is located on a separate hill near Verstaminai I and Verstaminai III mounds. Previously, the mound was in the shape of a saddle, its slopes are steep, 5-6 m high. At the top is a site of about 25 m in diameter. At its eastern and western ends are poured ramparts of 3-5 m tall. Lower embankments used to surround the edges of the site as well, but now they have been demolished. The ancient settlement is located at the southwestern foot of the mound. In the 1960s and 1980s, exploratory research was carried out here, during which fragments of molded pots with a rough surface were found. The archeological complex of the mound and the settlement dates back to the second half of the 1st millennium.
