Tumulus and grave much as the last. The bones perfect: teeth much worn and some lost: the coffin appeared unburnt. Two pieces of ivory [M 6105]; they are round and a little thicker than a swan's quill; and when properly joined at the place where they plainly appear to have come asunder (viz., in the grain), they make about a third part of a circle of about three inches diameter. I think they are part of a bracelet.[1] The blade of a knife, and some nail-like and other bits of iron.[1]Mr. Faussett's conjecture was most probably right, a bracelet very similar was found in grave No. 142- C.R.S.
