The third stage of using the area dates to the early and late Iron Age - 1st millenium BC. Archaeologists have studied dozens of Thracian ritual pits, some of which of a very large size. Chronologically, last on the list are two medieval dug-outs and at least three ritual pits for human sacrificial rites from the 8th-9th century.
