On the left bank of the Mēmele River, in Ceraukste municipality, in the fields of Aužeļi and Turki homesteads, we see an artificial mound, named “Pilskalns” (“Hillfort”). Indeed, this is a typical hillfort, constructed on a headland, which has formed between a ravine of a brook and the steep bank of the Mēmele. The headland is separated from the flat field to the north by a ditch, which is currently 2 m deep, and a 4 m high earthwork. The southern side of the earthwork slopes gently onto the hilltop. The hilltop is triangular and surrounded by steep slopes.
