It is believed that the site dates back 5000 years. It consists of two ditches and an apparent central building, which may have been covered by a mound, that has now been flattened due to centuries of ploughing. The site was located through a geophysical survey. It is believed it may contain human remains buried around 3600 BC. Experts state that archaeological investigation of this king of site will be the first one since 50 years.
