The aim of the conference – beyond presenting the latest research results of 9 important Central European Early Iron Age sites that belong to the framework of the EU program –is to analyse and to extend the limits of the research possibilities. This refers to the determination of the boundaries of the site complexes, their internal division, as well as the limits of the applied procedures, instruments and processing possibilities. Depending on the conditions of the sites, the research possibilities and the intensity of the research, it also became possible to discover roads, separate buildings, and even the structure of tumuli. But where are the limits, how much information can be obtained by non-destructive methods and their combined use, and how do  they change our understanding on these sites, which were mainly surveyed by field walks, mapping and excavations in the past?
