Konuvere hill fort

On a ridge between Konuvere and Vigala rivers lie the remains of a hill fort, probably settled in the 5th or 6th century. Excavations were carried out on the site in the 1970s. The site occupied a site approximately 2,000 square metres (22,000 sq ft) large. It seems to have been surrounded by a palisade, and within the remains of houses and stoves have been found. The archaeologists also found several items, mostly from the 10th to 11th centuries, including a precious gilded bronze button of Scandinavian origin.[3]
