Grave as the last, and about three feet deep. Much black dust of a coffin. bones nearly gone: fifteen small glass and earthen beads: two double ones, which were blue and white [M 6068 & M 6069], and something larger: four large amber beads: four or five slender rings, as before; I think of silver, but they would not bear handling; they had each a sliding knot, as before; they were all near the neck: a little lower was a round fibula subnectens [M 6070]: it is set round about with three garnets, and it has an empty socket in its centre; the intervals are gilded and wrought. Here was also the blade of a small knife: several small iron links, as of a chain, rusted together, with brass pins, or instruments, intermixed as before: some long iron nails: and underneath this skeleton, at the depth of about half a foot, was another, as follows. A woman's grave.
