Grave from west to east as before, and near four feet deep. The bones were nearly decayed. At the place of the neck, eighteen small beads of baked earth; they were, as those before, of different colours. One larger bead of blue glass striped with white. A sort of iron instrument, about six inches long: it had an iron ringle, of about three-quarters of an inch diameter, through one end of it.[1] A blade of a knife of the usual shape and size. A woman's grave.[1] That this was a key, see Sibertswold, Nos. 8, 18, and 180; Kingston, No. 54, Barfriston, No. 52, Beakesbourne, No. 32.
