The grave was discovered at the biritual cemetery investigated since 1984. There was an inhumation burial of a woman in a spacious burial pit. Above the chest bones the small vessel was placed, whereas an animal rib with traces of using as a tool was by the skull. Two necklaces were discovered by the neck. The brooch was on the left shoulder, the spindle whorl on the right shoulder, the iron buckle below the left hand and the iron knife near the femur. The bone amulet was found on the chest, whereas the beads were in four places of the skeleton (by the right knee and the shoulder, by the left elbow and the ribs). Fragments of the comb plates were found in the pit which disturbed the main burial pit.
The presence of richly decorated pendants in the grave, which are very common in Sambia, indicates contacts of the Hrubieszów Basin with the area of the ​​West Balt cultures from the area between the Pasłęka and the Neman.
