A middle-sized tumulus, the grave about three feet deep, and pointing with its feet to the east. The bones were much decayed; the coffin did not appear to have passed the fire. The head of an hasta, as at No. 16; this lay on the right side, on the outside of the coffin: an hemispherical umbo of a shield: three broad-headed iron studs: one small brass buckle, and a small iron buckle, both as before: the blades of two knives , and some nails.
