The small hill lies on the northern shore of the Dardanelles, 3 km south of the village Ilgardere in the district of Eceabat. David French first identified the settlement as being prehistoric. Mehmet Özdoğan visited the site and confirmed that it was inhabited throughout the Bronze Age. Almost all Troy phases (I-VI) are represented. In addition, Hellenistic and Roman pottery was also found.
