A middle-sized tumulus; grave about three-feet deep, its feet pointing to the east; the bones of an old person, very sound and perfect: the coffin had passed the fire. Here was a small iron buckle with a brass tongue [M 6290], which last has a garnet set in it; and the blade of a knife, and some nails.-Mem. That the legs of this person lay cross each other after the manner of a Knight Templar; but I suppose this position of them was entirely accidental, and without any meaning or design; however, I thought proper to take notice of it.
