You detect whether any living creatures in the area have ever been brought back from death by any means (raise dead, resurrection, miracle, wish, and so on). Th amount of information revealed depends on how long you study a particular area:
1st Round: Presence or absence of creatures that have returned from death.
2nd Round: Number of creatures in the area who have returned from death, and which among them has returned the most times. If more than one creature has returned the most times, the spell indicates the creature that has returned by the most powerful means.
3rd Round: The number of times each returned creature has returned from the dead, and by what means.
Note: Each round, you can turn to detect creatures that have returned from the dead in a new area. Th spell can penetrate barriers, but one foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt block it.
