Due to the difficulty of accessing the area, different non-invasive methods to study the area. Among the methods used were digital devices for field studies as well as maps in three dimensions drawn by means of an airborne laser, with which it has been possible to locate the site as well as discover new tombs.

It should be noted that this class of constructions have only been conserved in wooded areas, the rest has been destroyed as a result of the expansion of agriculture since medieval times.

Researchers have stated that there are certain similarities between the burial mounds that have been discovered in Poland with others found in different areas of Western Europe, such as Stonehenge, coinciding in age approximately.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
