Paliūnai Mound

The mound is situated on a separate elongated hill, surrounded by a marsh to the north and north-east and by ravines at the other foot. The slopes are quite gentle, about 10 m high. The upper part of the hill is 60 m long and 30 m wide. There is an ancient settlement at the southern and south-eastern foot of the mound. The area of the ancient settlement has been ploughed for a long time, which has eroded the cultural layer. Archaeological investigations have found isolated shards of moulded pots with a smooth surface and iron cinders.
