Geocache Description:


[LV] Kābeļkalns

Lībiešu kultūras uzplaukums tika piedzīvots 10.-13.gs., kad Daugavas krastos tika celtas apmetnes. Dažādu lībiešu pieminekļi ir sastopami no Aizkraukles līdz pat upes grīvai, bet liels skaits to gāja bojā saistībā ar Rīgas HES uzcelšanu 20.gs.70.gados. Spēkstacijas celtniecības laikā ūdenskrātuvē pazuduši 13 kapulauki, 1 pilskalns, 7 ciemu vietas, 2 viduslaiku baznīcas un kapsētas. Līdz mūsu dienām ir saglabājušies tikai divi līvu uzkalniņu kapulauki, viens no tiem ir Ikšķiles Kābeles. Kābeļu kapulaukā ir saglabājies 81 lībiešu kapu uzkalniņš, kas uzskatāms par ievērojamu kultūrvēsturisko mantojumu.

Ir vietējie, kas mūsdienās šo arī sauc par Lazdu kalnu, esot tur, domāju, ka nav lieku jautājumu kāpēc!

[EN] Kābeļkalns

The Liv culture flourished in the 10th-13th centuries, when settlements were built on the banks of the Daugava. Various Liv monuments are found from Aizkraukle to the mouth of the river, but a large number of them died due to the construction of the Riga HPP in the 1970s. During the construction of the power plant, 13 cemeteries, 1 castle mound, 7 village sites, 2 medieval churches and cemeteries disappeared. Until today, only two Livonian hills have been preserved, one of them is Ikšķile Kābele. There are 81 Liv Cemetery Hill, which is considered to be a significant cultural and historical heritage.

There are locals who nowadays call it Hazel mountain, when you arethere, I think there is no question why!
