Midsummer bonfires on the hill forts - European Archeology Days 2021
In 2021, the European Archeology Days will take place from 18 to 20 June. The National Heritage Board of Latvia has been involved in the European Archeology Days already last year, however, taking into account the epidemiological situation in the country, it was not possible to prepare for large-scale events this year as well as the previous. As the time of the European Archaeological Days is close to the Summer Solstice and in Latvia also to Midsummer's Eve, this year we provide a small insight into the festival in connection with archeological monuments and Latvian archaeologists.
