Tumulus and grave much as the last. Very sound bones of an elderly person; burnt coffin. At the right side was the head of a pilum, as before; exactly four feet from the point of it was the ferrule and spike, as at No. 127. Here was also the blade of a knife: a thin square piece of brass [M 6365], with a square hole in the middle, and a small rivet at each corner, with rotten wood adhering to them: a small brass buckle and shank [M 6366]: the blade of a knife, and some nails.
