This grave was sunk to about the depth of a foot, or thereabouts, within the firm chalk. The height of the agger, or bank, was here about four feet above it. The bones were almost gone; no appearance of a coffin. Near the left hip was a sort of iron instrument; the blade of a knife, as before; a small iron buckle with a brass shank; an iron buckle and shank; a thin plate of brass; others; and several straight short pieces of iron wire. The skull had the frontal suture.
