Geocache Description:



Plāteres pilskalns

Latviski:

Valsts nozīmes arheoloģijas piemineklis - lielākais Ogres rajona pilskalns, mūsu senču koka pilskalna vieta. Bijis spēcīgs apcietinājums, kas ierīkots grants kalnā, uzberot un atrokot zināmā stāvumā un augstumā kalna sānus. Sānmalu caurmēra augstums 7-10m. Mēģinājuma rakumā mītņu kārtā atrasti dzelzs šautru gali un vara zvārgulīši no jaunākā dzelzs laikmeta. 1934. gadā pilskalnā viesojies prezidents Kārlis Ulmanis, uzņemti fragmenti filmai "Tik un tā". Pilskalns tika uzskatīts par Latvijas ģeogrāfisko centru līdz Latvijas robežu izmaiņām pēc Otrā pasaules kara.
Lai šai vietai piešķirtu vairāk romantisma, Plāteres lielkungs senajā pilskalnā licis uzcelt mākslīgas pilsdrupas, un šis viltojums saglabājies līdz mūsdienām.Jāpiebilst, ka ceļš, kas būvēts līdz pilskalna plakumam, pārrokot senos aizsargvaļņus, kādreizējās estrādes un citu civilizācijas "labumu'' paliekas nedaudz mazina šīs vietas skaistumu un vērtību. Pilskalna apkārtnē uzmeklējami arī divi dižozoli 6 m apkārtmērā.
Pilskalns labi redzams pāri laukam no Madlienas-Aderkašu ceļa.

English:

The hill fort is located on the side of the road Madliena–Meņģele 3 km from the centre of Madliena, next to the house Krēsliņi. The hill fort is built on a 20 m high hill by making its plateau even and creating steeper slopes on the sides of the hill. At the north, east and south foot of the hill fort there is a wide moat, but on the west side – a terrace. The entrance was from the south along the west slope. The plateau is oval, 100 m long, and 50 m wide in the middle. A 3 m high moraine is located on the southeast side of the plateau. Single contexts show that the hill fort was inhabited between the 5th and the 13th century. It is considered that the Plātere Hill Fort was the geographical centre of Latvia before the eastern border was relocated. During the 1860's, the landlord of Plātere E. Tiesenhausen ordered to build artificial castle ruins. During the Soviet period, an open-air stage was located at the hill fort, and by building a road to it the moraine was affected. Two secular oak trees with a 6 m circumference grow near the hill fort. An archaeological monument of national importance.

Latviski:

Slēpnis ir plastmasas kārba, kas satur logbooku, pildspalvu un dažus nieciņus apmaiņai.

English:

Cache is a plastic box that contains logbook, pen and some things for exchange.
