Tumulus and grave much as the last. The bones were very sound; the teeth were very white, sound, and regular; the coffin had been much burnt. Near the neck were two small beads. Here were also the blades of two knives; and a greater number of such small iron links (often mentioned before), than I have hitherto met with in one grave. Here were also several pieces of iron and wood rusted together, of which nothing could be made out: a piece of a round iron buckle, of about one inch diameter, and several nails. This I take to have been a woman's grave.
