Tumulus and grave much as the last. The bones of a middle-aged person very sound; the teeth very regular and white; the coffin was much burnt. Here were many fragments of a very thin urn of greenish glass; not broken now; but, as I imagine, in digging the grave for the person last interred. Near the head was a brass pin about an inch long, with its head flatted on two sides parallel to its length. Here was also the blade of a knife and some nails.
