Largish tumulus. The bones were almost gone ; no appearance of a coffin. On the left side of the skull was the head of a pilum; near the hips were a small brass buckle and shank; and the blade of a knife. In digging through the tumulus were found four iron staples, each about five inches long; a piece of a patera of fine coralline earth; and the sherds of a coarse black wide-mouthed urn. Grave, three feet and a half deep.
Date excavatedAugust 3rd, 1772
