No tumulus. A sherd or two of a very thick and pretty large black urn, of very coarse earth, was found a little under the surface. The bones were pretty perfect; the coffin had not passed the fire. Near the neck were twelve small beads; a small silver bulla-like pendant; and a brass knotted ring, with a small green bead strung on it [M 6262], as before; also a small brass spangle (if I may call it so) strung in like manner on another small brass knotted ring; and near the left hip, the blade of a knife and many links of an iron chain, as before, rusted together into a lump. Grave two feet deep. A woman's grave.
Date excavated30th September, 1773
