TALSI HILLFORT AND LAKE VILKMUIŽA

About the object

Talsi hillfort was the centre of the ancient Couronian land. The hillfort was originally inhabited by Livonians, but following the Couronian expansion in Courland in the 11th century, it landed in their possession and was heavily fortified. The so-called “healer’s hut” – a small log house with bathhouse tools – was discovered on the hillfort. Lake Vilkmuiža features the unique Couronian fire burial sites of the 11th–14th centuries. Researchers are still arguing, whether these were intentionally immersed or is this due to flooding of the burial ground. The antiques found in Lake Vilkmuiža are exhibited at Talsi Regional Museum and the Latvian National Museum of History.
