Description The geophysical survey of the burial mound Žuráň brought several new findings. The main objective was the identification of underground structures that were not discovered by archaeological excavation in the years 1948 to 1950. It was thought that these structures could still be hidden under the stone cairn remains which were retained in situ after the excavation. The presence of such objects indicate the conclusions of the geophysical survey conducted in 2008. A GPR survey newly captured several significant anomalies; however, they can be interpreted only as the remains of the internal structure of the stone cairn. This has also been recognised by using magnetometry. However, this method revealed several significant anomalies, which can be interpreted as potential objects.
