 残堀川の拡幅整備工事に伴い、狭山池の周辺の狭山遺跡で竪穴住居が発見され、縄文時代中期集落の存在が明らかとなりました。また狭山丘陵中腹の六道山遺跡では石鏃(せきぞく)をはじめとする多数の石器と、狩猟用の陥穴(おとしあな)が発見されました。When the Zanbori River was being widened, pit dwellings were discovered at the Sayama site around the Sayama Pond. From this discovery, the existence of a settlement in the middle Jomon period (approx. 5,500-4,500 years ago) became evident. In addition, a large number of stone implements, including flint arrowheads, and hunting pits were discovered at the Mt. Rokudo site, halfway up Sayama Hill.

 狭山池から東へ続く古墳時代の人工の溝が発見されました。水田開発等で池水を利用する目的で開鑿(かいさく)されたと思われます。Leading to the east from Sayama Pond, a man-made trench dating from the Kofun (Tumulus) period (mid-3rd century to 7th centry AD) was discovered. It seems to have been cut to utilize the pond water for the paddy field development.
