Middle-sized tumulus. It contained, at the depth of about two feet under the natural surface, the skeleton of an elderly person (as appeared by the much-worn teeth), lying with the feet due east. Near its right shoulder was a small urn, of very coarse and black earth, which was broken in pieces by a stroke from one of the workmen's tools. The remains of a thick and burnt coffin were very visible The bones were very much decayed.
