Middle-sized tumulus. Bones very perfect; the coffin had passed the fire, and seemed to have been very thick. The head of a pilum, on the right side of the knees; and the blade of a knife near the left hip. At the right side of the feet was the iron spike, or ferrule of the pilum, three inches long. Grave, four feet deep.
