It is placed on the north-east of Bzów, near the paved path leading to Kidów. There, a large rock is situated called the Rzędowa Rock.
The preliminary researches conducted by B. Muzolf between 3 rd September- 5 th October 1991 confirmed that there is a lot of archaeological material to be found in the area of the about 3 ha. The biggest cluster of it was located to the south-east of the rock. The monuments were said to be from the Hallstatt Period, the Lusatian Culture and the Middle Ages (XIII-XIV c.). The open area of 120 square meters was examined altogether and a little survey was conducted in one of the caves being under the rock.
In the course of the excavation work three objects were allocated. The first were the remains of the cottages of a framework structure, without traces of the fire pit. The only thing that proves this fact is the shallow, pit in the shape of rectangle filled up with grey humus in which the large cluster of fragments was found. The second object, which function is still unknown, was perhaps a part of the mentioned cottage. The third object is an extensive, quite narrow area which resemble the letter „L” in shape. In its range two centres of ceramics were located together with the pellets of self-made clay floor.
Between villages of Bzów and Karlin there is the Rzędowa Rock. There is a small cave in the rock- it is an interesting tunnel long for 40 meters. According to local people a kind of devil called Licho lived there. When people were going to work early in the morning in Bzów’s quarry they were strayed in the fog, were late for work or did not go to work at all. When a cross was placed on the top of the rock the evil spirits were gone. It is necessary here to emphasize the fact that the cross was placed there only seven years ago so in the age of the capitalism. In the communist era the evil spirits led the people away from work, usually straight into the local bar!
Other legend says that there was no evil spirit at all and the tunnel is linked with the Ogrodzieniec Castle which is clearly visible from the the Rzędowa Rock. „If somebody doesn't believe then check it" - this is what locals say. Also, the complex of rocks is a nice place to check oneself’s climbing skills.
