SPĀRNU HILLFORT

About the object

The ancient hillfort of Semigallians is located in a rolling terrain, which is not typical for the usually flat region, surrounded by forests and lakes. The findings on the hillfort, the location and the name of the hillfort and Lake Spārnu confirm the opinion that one of the largest Semigallian land centres mentioned in the historical sources – Spārnene Castle (costrum Sparnene) – was located on Spārnu Hillock. The edges of the hillock are unusually steep, which is rare among Semigallian hillforts. Before the arrival, read the ancient tale about a duck that entered a hole in the hillfort but was later found swimming in the lake.
