Tumulus and grave much as the last: very perfect bones of an old person: the coffin did not appear to have passed the fire. Here was a small brass buckle and shank, as before; the blade of a knife, several bits of iron, about the size of a goose-quill, which seemed to have had some small wire thinly twisted about them; and at the feet, on the outside of the coffin, was the head of a pilum, a circumstance I have never met with before; it lay parallel to the grave, with its point to the east end of it; it had been wrapped up in some coarse cloth, like some others before mentioned. Here were also several nails.
