Bridvaišis Mound

The mound is located on the former island of the lake, the western part of a separate hill located on the northern shore of Lake Bridvaišis. It was protected by a swamp – which is a peat bog now – from all other sides. The plot is quadrangular, elongated in the north-south direction, 25×18 m in size. A 0.3 m high, 5 m wide embankment was created on its eastern side, behind which an 8 m wide, 0.2 m deep ditch was dug. Slopes are moderately steep, 1.5 –6 m high. The southern slope of the mound is washed by Lake Bridvaišis. The slopes are covered with pine trees, the site lies fallow.
