Tumulus and grave, much as the last. No appearance of any coffin. These bones, also, though almost gone, seem to have been those of an old person. At the, feet were found some sherds of a larger, and near the right hip, others of a smaller, urn; both of them of very coarse black earth; whether these vessels suffered from the negligence of my workmen, or were broken before, I cannot pretend to say. The sherds were so rotten when taken out that they would scarce bear handling.
