Venteri Hillfort

This hillfort was first described in 1868 by A. Bīlenšteins, who had even made a clay model of the castle mound and displayed it at the Kurzeme ProvinceMuseum in Jelgava. However, E.Brastiņš, having studied the castle mound in 1922, came to a conclusion that it is merely “a castlet” or a fortification site. The hillfort is surrounded by a swamp – remains of an ancient water fortification, which is possibly why the castle mound was used temporarily or only in case of danger.
