Tumulus much ,as the last; grave about three feet deep, with its feet pointing to the east. The bones of an elderly person, pretty sound; burnt coffin. A small iron buckle, as at No. 19: a brass buckle and shank [M 6180]; the shank has three round-headed studs on it;[1] some linen or other cloth still adheres to the inside of it, with which I imagine the belt, to which the shank of the buckle was riveted, was lined: the blade of a knife, and some nails.[1]That in No. 127 had also been ornamented with studs, like this smaller example; but they have perished.- C.R.S.
