The investigation purpose is studying by ground penetrating radar (GPR) methods of the fortification features of Hakassko-Minusinsk Region at the Bronze Age. The estimation of GPR efficiency at monitoring researches, time and expenses on engineeringarcheological works were carried out. Object of researches is the ancient fortress on Stone Island of Yenisei River. In 2007 GPR researches of total amount 1500 meters of GPR tracking structures has been carried out by Radar R&D. As a result of researches, contours of fortifications battlement are restored. Contours of the stone bases under dwellings are found out and restored. In the studying, GPR sounding is practically tested with the purpose of detection and construction of contours of the fortification rests and other objects. The software for efficiency increase of archeological researches and reduction of expenses was developed. By results of experimental and practical works the GPR method is proved and practically approved for the undersurface environment monitoring with the purpose of revealing of the zones interestingfrom the archeology point of view.
