Recent application of different approaches and research tools helped acquire a new, startling picture confirming the unique cognitive potential of this spectacular areal of ancient to activities. The initial impulse to study presented site by field-walking and the successive non-destructive surveys were the promising results of archive aerial and satellite images analysis. This paper presents the results of large-scale spatial approach with the use of magnetic gradiometry as the fastest and the most cost effective geophysical technique capable of detecting a wide variety of anthropogenic transformations.
