Is dated. Like the Schönebeck district ditch (in the Salzland district), it was discovered by flight prospecting . In 2005/2006 geomagnetic investigations were carried out which confirmed the aerial image structures and produced further ring systems, a smaller circular trench system overlaid by the large one, and a number of pits. The Pommelte-Zackmünde circular moat is a complex ritual sitewhere various religious acts were carried out. Since December 2015, the complex has been called "Ringheiligtum Pömmelte".
