We began where we last left off, namely on the bank by the side of the road; and the first grave we came to contained the skeleton of a person whose teeth were not all cut in the under jaw. It lay like those before mentioned, namely, with its feet to the south-west, and at the depth of about three feet. On the left side of the skull we found an urn of a lightish red earth, coloured with black [M 6787]; it is three inches and a quarter high, and four inches and three-quarters in diameter. The remains of a coffin were very visible, but it did not appear to have passed the fire.
