The bone plates for the grip of a bow were found at Szeged-Kiskundorozsma, Kettőshatár Road Site I (M5 No. 63, 26/4) in Grave 434 of Cemetery II. The site is located north of Szeged-Kiskundorozsma, on a hilltop between a branch of the Maty Creek and a now dry lake called Balaton, once part of Lake Fehér. The excavations of the site were carried out by the archaeologists of the Móra Ferenc Museum of Szeged between 26 April and 30 June 2004. The bone plates are now in the Móra Ferenc Museum of Szeged, Hungary. They measure 13.3 x 2.2 and 11.2 x 2.2 centimetres.
