MY First Cache!

LAT

Priediena senkapi, Pastorata senkapi-Valsts nozimes arheologijas piemineklis.

Ainaviskas, plašas Priediena plavas ar retam, milzigam priedem Grobinas pievarte slepj unikalu kulturas pieminekli. Šeit savulaik atradušies vismaz 2000 uzkalninu, zem kuriem apbediti senas skandinavu kolonijas iemitnieki. Pedeja gadsimta gaita šeit notikuši daudzi izrakumi, pie kam vietejo iedzivotaju nostasti liecina, ka uzkalninus parmeklejuši ari vertigu mantu mekletaji.

Priediena viens otram lidzas atrodas musdienas jau vairs tikko manami uzkalnini, kuru diametrs ir no 3 lidz 15 metriem, augstums - no 0,1 lidz 1,4 metriem. Varam but parliecinati, ka agrakos laikos uzkalnini bijuši daudz stavaki un izteiksmigaki. Uzkalnini atškiras ar izmeriem, tie nebut nebija veidoti pec viena parauga.

Ludzu ,pec tam sakartojiet slepni,lai nevaretu redzet to no malas.

Esiet uzmanigi ,jo pa dienu ir sastopami zirgi :)

ENG

Picturesque, spacious meadows of Priediens with scarce, enormous pine-trees hide unique monument of culture. Once upon a time here were located more than 2000 barrows with burials of ancient Scandinavian colonists underneath. Throughout the last 100 years here have taken place numerous excavations. Tales of local people give a hint that barrows have been searched also by treasure seakers.

Whole area of Priediens consists of barrows located rather close together. Nowadays they are hardly visible, diametre is 3 - 15 metres, height - 0,1 - 1,4 metres. We can be sure that in earlier times barrows were much steeper and more expressive. Barrows have different size, they have not been shaped after one example.
Each barrow earlier was marked with a vertical element - possibly - stone stele. Up to this day there has been found just one such stele - the only known Scandinavian stele in Eastern Baltic region. Most likely the landscape in Priediens few centuries ago was very unusual - as if landed here from some fantasy book.

Attention during the day occur with horses!!!!
