Excavations were carried out in 1904-1905 by E. Delheid at height of the Zeecrabbe street in Uccle, near avenue De Fré, during earthworks. On the site were discovered three years earlier some Merovingian graves. New, strongly disturbed graves, came to light. The bone material was divided between the RMAH and the RBINS.
