3 – an iron shield boss with a destroyed dome (from impact of the spearhead), type K1 of Zieling;
4 – an iron shield-grip, type 9/X of Jahn/Zieling. The following objects were also found in the grave: an iron buckle with a slightly thickened oval frame, type AH30 of Madyda-Legutko; a fragment of ornamented comb made of a horn, type IA of Thomas; a fragment of hand-shaped pottery.

The cremation grave deposited in an urn was found during the archaeological excavation in 1987 led by Zbigniew Nowakowski from the State Archaeological Museum in Warsaw. A total of 211 cremation graves were at the cemetery – majority of them are dated to the 2nd century – the 4th century AD. The late phase of the cemetery (the 3rd century – the 4th century AD) is characterized by a significant decrease in the number of burials. Grave 173 clearly stands out with the rich inventory of a foot warrior.
