Geocache Description:

Kauttuan Linnavuorella sijaitseva kätkö


[FIN]

Linnavuorilla oli rautakaudella tärkeä sija kylien elämässä. Euran Kauttuan Linnavuori on osin jyrkkäseinämäinen peltotasangolta nouseva mäki, jonka laelta vartioitiin tärkeitä rautakautisia kulkureittejä. Linnavuorelta on ollut näköyhteys lähes kaikkiin Euran rautakauden lopun kalmistoihin. Voidaankin olettaa, että lähistöllä on sijainnut useita kyliä. Vuorelle sytytettiin merkkituli uhkaavissa tilanteissa ja sinne paettiin vihollista. Kauttuan linnavuorta on tutkittu vain pieniltä alueilta. Sieltä on löydetty mm. rautakuonaa, väkipuukon katkelma ja saviastioiden paloja. Esinelöydöt ajoittavat linnavuoren 700–800-lukujen taitteeseen.

Linnavuorelle kapuaja voi eläytyä entisaikojen elämään. Vuorelta on tarkkailtu kulkureittejä ja kylien touhuja. Kävijä voi vieläkin kavuta ylös jyrkkää mäkeä pitkin. Laella on yhä noin 63 metriä pitkä kivinen varustus, joka kiertää mäen lakea. Kivivallin päällä on ollut hirsinen rakennelma. Linnavuoren laki on suosittu käyntikohde ja paikalla on informaatiotauluja.

[ENG]

Hill forts had an important station in the lives of villages in the Iron Age. The hill fort in Kauttua, Eura is partly a steep hill rising from a field of plains and from its summit was vigil kept over important travelling routes during the Iron Age. From the hill fort there was a line of sight to almost all burial sites and places in Eura at the end of the Iron Age. It can be presumed that many villages were located nearby. A signal fire was lit on the mountain the case of a danger and it was the place to flee to when enemies threatened.

The hill fort of Kauttua has been examined only a little. From there have been discovered, among other things, iron slag, pieces of knives and clay pottery. The objects date the hill fort to the turning point of 8th and 9th century.

Visitors can climb up the steep hill even today. In the summit there is still an approx. 63 metres long stony fortification which circles the top of the hill. On top of the stone wall there has been a wooden construction. The summit is a popular visiting place and the information boards can be found there.
