Geocache Description:


[ENG] Our next cache is also dedicated to history but this time ancient history. It is placed near a prehistoric burial site which was used between ~500BC and 2nd century for burial of (most likely) the local elite (eg. wealthier land owners). It is remarkable that this burial site has been used consequently throughout a number of different cultural periods. Bronze jewelery, spearheads and arms have been excavated from this site between 1984-1986 and are now on display in the Estonian History Museum. To learn more visit the links below.

Materials used: muhu.info [PDF] and Livonia Ring

About the cache
This cache is published on: [geocaching.com], [geopeitus.ee], [opencaching.pl].
Access is marked with brown tourist attraction signs but there is no proper car parking available (leave your car at the roadside). From there you need to walk 160m to the burial site. Do not dig, do not move any stones, respect the place.
Container is a plastic box (dimensions: 16 x 10 x 4 cm) put in a vapour permeable membrane sachet - it should allow the box to dry fast after getting wet - we are testing how this method works so please do NOT add any plastic bag.

[EST] Meie järgmine aare on samuti pühendatud ajaloole. Aare on peidetud eelajalooliste kalmete lähedale, mis olid kasutuses ~500 eKr kuni teine sajand matmispaigaka (tõenäoliselt) kohalikule eliidile (näiteks rikkamad maaomanikud). Tähelepanuväärne on, et need kalmed on pidevalt kasutuses olnud mitmete kultuuriperioodide jooksul. Pronksist ehteid, odapäid ja relvi on siit leitud üleskaevamistes aastatel 1984-1986 ja praegu saab neid näha Eesti Ajaloomuuseumis. Rohkem saab lugeda allolevatelt lehtedelt.

Kasutatud materjalid: muhu.info [PDF] ja Livonia Ring

Aardest
See aare on avaldatud: [geocaching.com], [geopeitus.ee] ja [opencaching.pl].
Võite järgida pruune märke, mis juhatavad kalmete/aardeni, kuid auto jaoks korralikku parklat ei ole. Saate jätta auto suure tee äärde, kust on jalgsi kalmeteni umbes 160m. Ära kaeva, ära puutu kive, austa kohta, kuhu oled juhatatud! Konteineriks on plastkarp (mõõtmed: 16 x 10 x 4 cm), mis on pandud spetsiaalsesse ümbrisesse ja see peaks laskma karbil kiiresti kuivada. Testime seda, seega palun ärge pange karpi kilekotti.

Algselt karbis
