The burial lay some 250 m from the shore, at a depth of 3 m, in the outer part of the Tybrind Vig site (Fig. 1). The bay is almost semicircular, directly exposed to the west and the prevailing winds in Denmark. The bathymetry of the bay shows a prehistoric lagoon, with its entrance to the north, providing relatively deep water only 17 250 m from the present shore. The settlement area that was the object of the decade-long investigations lies near the entrance of the lagoon, on its landward (eastern) side, and the new burial is in the western, deepest part of this area.

In 2004 another burial was discovered at Tybrind Vig, this time a little further out into the bay. The same group of amateur divers that formed the mainstay of the team from the ten-year-long Tybrind Vig project reported the find, and raised some skull fragments that were submitted to Moesgård Museum in Århus. Radiocarbon dates were obtained on samples from both individuals. The larger individual, probably male, gave a determination of 6820±55 BP (AAR-9341, uncorrected), from a sample of the mandible.

As soon as they were uncovered enough to be raised, a gloved hand would bag them immediately on the seabed, and place them in a specially designed lifting basket. It is hoped that ancient DNA can be recovered from the bones. In addition, samples of the surrounding sediment were taken with the aim of extracting sedaDNA from the humans as well as from other organisms that might have been present at the site during the time of the burial. No artefacts were found in or associated with the burial, and no grave pit could be seen around the skeletons.
