Under the same tumulus with the last, and in a parallel grave. The bones were pretty perfect; burnt coffin; teeth much worn; a large knife blade, or short sword, nine inches long, and one and a half inch broad.[1] Here was, also, a small black urn at the feet; broken in taking out; so much, that I could not at all guess at its shape: several nails.[1]It appears to have perished. The drawing represents it somewhat like fig. 8, pl. 15.- C.R.S.
