1 – two bow brooches made of copper alloy, of West Heslerton/Weimar/Brunnhem type, with heads in the form of a rectangular plate and facetted bows with a metope on the top. Feet are in the form of a profiled plate. One of the brooches is decorated with groups of concentric rings on the head, the bow and the foot;
2 – a brooch made of copper alloy with a double spring on one axle. A bow and a foot with an openwork terminal have horizontal grooves;
3 – a brooch made of copper alloy, with a “false spring” – a bow was cast in one piece with a head to imitate a chord. The iron chord is located under the brooch head. The bow is partly facetted;
4 – a silver ring of spirally twisted wire;
5 – an iron knife with a straight blade and a slightly arched spine.

All brooches have parallels in southern Scandinavia and Gotland as well as in England in the 5th century AD. The gold rings in this form are known in the Baltic Sea region.

The grave was discovered in 2010 during the archaeological excavation. The cemetery at Czarnówko, site 5, had been excavated since 1973. About 2,400 graves from the early Iron Age to the early Middle Ages have been discovered here. The vast majority of the graves belong to Wielbark Culture from the Roman Perion, whereas six graves constitute a small cemetery from the Migration Period associated with the Scandinavian population living in the area of Czarnówko in the late 5th century AD. One of them was the woman buried in feature 903A.
