[FONT=&quot]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

You don't need the "at."

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