Topographic surveys are one of the non-destructive methods that provide valuable and significant assistance to archaeologists in field works. In topographic surveys, an archaeological surveyor deals with all the depressions and ridges in the site and how they relate to humans. Remains of walls and architectural structures, the remains of ancient graves and furnaces, the outcrop of the large slate rock in ancient hills, remnants of canals built in the past and contemporary of the site, enclosures with aggregation of pottery and stone fragments, and in general, the lowest slopes and the smallest phenomena are other highlights, and all of them are mapped by using GPS. On the other hand, many scholars believe that the Pasargadae built in the time of Cyrus the Great and his successors, is beyond the area known to us today. If we look at the Achaemenid Pasargadae as a puzzle, we undoubtedly need to conduct archaeological research in the villages and surrounding areas to put all the pieces of this puzzle together. One of these sites is an ancient hill located in the easternmost part of Dehno village. In 2017, the team of topographic surveys of the Joint Mission of Archaeological Surveys of Iran- France; Under the supervision of Kourosh Mohammadkhani and Sebastian Gondet, conducted field works on this site. The results indicate the settlement on the ancient hill in the Islamic period.
