[LV]

Mežītes pilskalns ir viens no vizuāli skaistākajiem Kurzemes pilskalniem. Pilskalnu datē ar vēlo dzelzs laikmetu, un ir hipotēze, ka Mežītes pilskalnā atradusies kāda 1234. gada dokumentā par 25 arklu zemes izlēņošanu Rīgas Sv.Pētera baznīcai minēta “Castellatura Lodgiae”. Pilskalns atradās seno kuršu Vanemas zemē.
Mežītes pilskalns ierīkots savrupā, ap 13 m augstā kalnā, kam ir mākslīgi nostāvinātas nogāzes.  Visapkārt pilskalnam gandrīz 3 ha platībā atradusies apmetnes vieta, kurā dažviet kultūrslānis sasniedz ap 1 m dziļumu. Netālu no pilskalna zināmas divas senkapu vietas – t.s. Kapurkalnā atrastas vēlajā dzelzs laikmetā kuršiem raksturīgas senlietas, bet Kalnenieku mājās  konstatēti tā paša laika perioda Baltijas somiem raksturīgie skeletkapi.

[ENG]

The Mežīte Hill Fort is one of the visually most beautiful hill forts of Kurzeme. It is dating back to the late Iron Age. There was a hypothesis made that in the Mežīte Hill Fort, the "Castellatura Lodgiae”, mentioned in some document dating back to 1234 about enfeoffing of 25 acres of land to the Riga St. Peter's Church, was situated. The hill fort was located in the Curonian land of Vanema. The Mežīte Hill Fort was constructed on a solitary, about 13 m high hill, the slopes of which had been artificially made steeper.
All around the hill fort, in the area of almost 3 ha, there used to be a settlement place where the cultural layer sometimes reaches the depth of about 1 m. Not far from the hill fort, two burial ground sites are known - in the so-called Kapurkalns, the artefacts typical of the Curonians of the late Iron Age were found, but in the ground of the Kalnenieki homestead, in a gravel hillock, inhumation graves of the same period typical of the Baltic Finns were found.
