In 2001, on the foot path of a mountain pick, near the village Kokino, archeologist Jovica Stankovski, discovered an archeological site from The Bronze Age. The site has a stately dimension and is scaled on two levels. Several stone seats (thrones) are dominant on the site and they are pointing towards the east horizon. Even from the first visit it could be noticed that through the entire site there were traces of a deliberate human intervention. Archaeological excavations are carried out on the upper platform on which valuable movable material has been found (ceramic fragments mostly), animal bones, pyramidal weights, fragments of two hones (grind stones) made of filitic slate and a kelt mould. It was discovered that the site, in the course of the whole second millennium B.C. was used as an Observatory, which indicates a high level of cultural progress and social organization of the inhabitants who used the observatory. The high concentration of the movable archaeological material found on the upper platform probably indicates its use in a function which is so far remains unknown cult activities. The disposition and the concept of the whole site itself, speaks of the use of the locality as a Peak Sanctuary.
