Field prospection was focused on verification of anomalies seen on satelite pictures of GoogleEarth, as well as on aerial prospection. There were approved the archaeological situations/features on both sites, that were found during aerial prospection of the monitored area. By Geophysical interpretation there were located first of all settlement features, but also system of fortification. Regarding to location of each features measured by geophysics, it is possible to analyze the build-up area on both settlements. According to recovered ceramics it is possible to date both sites only to prehistory, as there are more cultures represented.
