Pušalotas burial ground

  • Pušaloto kapinynas
This burial ground is in the village of Pušalotas, Pasvalys district. The burial ground has been known by archaeologists since the middle of the nineteenth century when having dug trenches for foundations of buildings there were found some artifacts specific for the II–XII centuries. They were transferred to the Kaunas City Museum (now it is the War Museum named after Vytautas the Great Vytautas Didysis). In 1999, any valuable archaeological layer was not found and it was implied that the area between the cemetery and the people’s homesteads is not an archaeological monument. The burial ground was probably to the north from the investigated location, where now there are the homesteads of the village residents. This is evidenced by the stories of the population: digging pits or wells they used to find some bones and artifacts turned green.
