GROBIŅA ARCHAEOLOGICAL ENSEMBLE:
A KEY TO THE VIKING AGE
Grobiņa archaeological ensemble
The entire complex is regarded as a key to a unique change in global communication experience. The attributes that give Grobiņa archaeological ensemble its unique character – the shape, the structure and the cultural layer of the hillfort and the settlement, the shape and the structure of the burial mounds and flat-graves, as well as the findings and undiscovered potential artefacts at the sites – represent a unique and a well-preserved evidence of the outset of Viking Age Scandinavian overseas activity. During the pre-Viking age, between the 7th and 9th centuries, Grobiņa developed into the earliest and most impressive Scandinavian overseas settlement.
