Laukstibas Medieval Cemetery or ‘Idol Cemetery’

Laukstibas Medieval Cemetery or ‘Idol Cemetery’ (Elku kapi) lies about 1 km west of Pļavmuiža, south-west of the former Laukstibas Farm, on a promontory adjacent to the valley of the Pļavupīte stream. Judging by the finds obtained here in the 1930s and a bronze rosette brooch found in the 1980s, the cemetery may have been established in the 14th–16th century, remaining in use later as well, since people from the surrounding farms were apparently buried here.
