Current field researches of the project D3 are concerned with geomagnetic prospections and surface inspection in the near of the Bronze Age burial ground at Bornhöved. References to structures in soil have already been compared with data from previous investigations. Remains of grave mounds and other soil findings are distinguished by geomagnetic figures. Some surface finds also suggest that in this area there were not only burial activities, but also settlements. The surveys take place continuously this winter. Excavations are planned for spring.
