The next grave contained two skeletons, one on the other; the lowermost was that of a full grown person; it lay at about the depth of five feet, and with its feet to the south-west, as before. We found nothing at all with it, nor was there any appearance of a coffin. The uppermost skeleton lay at about the depth of three feet. It appeared to be the remains of a very old person, the few teeth remaining in the jaws being worn almost to the stumps; I observed also, that some of the sockets in the under jaw were entirely closed up. We found nothing with it, except some pieces of iron, the use of which we could give no guess at. This last appeared to have been enclosed in a coffin, but it did not seem to have passed the fire. This grave was close to the road side, at the westmost end of this burial-place, namely, as you,go down it towards Wye or Ollantigh.
