Březí u Říčan, Prague-East dist., Central Bohemian Region
A small Hallstatt Period hillfort, probably used by the local elite, at a typical location on a promontory above a stream. Preserved today are two ditches and two massive banks – the remnants of wood and earth ramparts. The hillfort was apparently destroyed by fire.
