The Hillfort in Bródno-Stare and the settlement are the only early medieval settlement complex in the area of today's Warsaw that has been excavated. The settlement complex is located in the area of Bródno Forest.
The fort was built in the 10th century and was erected on a dune situated among the marshes stretching between the Skurcza and Zaza rivers. Due to its location, it served a refugial function , being a place of shelter for the people of the nearby settlement.
The Hillfort on Bródno is a ring-shaped fort. Its dimensions are approx. 40 x 47 m.
The fort functioned until the beginning of the 11th century, and the settlement located north-west of it, existed until the end of the 11th century.
In 2008, the Warsaw Archaeological Park was established here.
