    Red face lay x metres into the ...

    Hi Everyone!

    I need some help with this expression. It is correct to say:

    "the metal artefacts lay at 1,50 m into the ground on the bank of a paleo-tributary of the Po river"

    Thank you in advance

    Buno

    Not a teacher.

    You don't need the "at."

    Even better would be to just say they lay 1.5 m underground.
