Small tumulus. Bones almost gone; the coffin had passed the fire, and appeared to have been very thick. Near the neck were one amethyst, one drop-like bead of baked or vitrified earth with blue, white, and yellow stripes; it seemed to have been set, it having no foramen; also three small earthen beads of different colours. Grave two feet and a half deep. A woman's grave.
