Tumulus much as the last; the grave side by side to the last; bones pretty sound; no signs of a coffin. Some sherds of a large urn of coarse black earth, disturbed and broken when this person was buried. By the size, I should imagine it to have been an ossuary or bone-urn; it seemed to have been capable of holding above a gallon; but no bits of burnt bones were found.
