  • Comment Excavations in the circular hillfort "Scheibenstuhl", near the districts of Beschling (railway station Schlins) confirm the dating of the settlement in the Hallstatt and La Tène period.  The "Scheibenstuhl" is located in the district of Beschling south of the church and covers an area of approx. 170 x 50 m. The flanks of the pleistocene sediment resting elevation are surrounded by a still visible wall. At the northern terrace combustion altars were detected. The sacrificial site is limited to the frontal, northern area of the terrace, while the entire southern section remains empty of findings and funds. About 3 to 4 m north of these sacrificial pits lay the remains of two stone substructures of combustion sites ("bothroi") and parallel, to the 7.0 m long dry-stone foundations. One of these incinerators consisted of a sort of "plaster" formed by rocks placed close together in loam. The second, in contrast, was marked by blocks placed next to each other. Red burnt sediments and burn marks completed the findings.
