Under the same tumulus; but the grave not more than three feet deep, and parallel to the last. The bones were much decayed: burnt coffin. Some fragments of a small urn of greenish glass were found before we came to a skeleton; it had been disturbed and broken, I suppose, when the grave was dug for the reception of the person last buried. There was a conical iron umbo of a shield, as at No. 124; it had four broad-headed studs or rivets in its rim, as before described. There were also two broader-headed iron studs as before; the head of a pilum on the right side; the blade of a knife; and some nails.
