Tumulus and grave much as the last. It contained two skeletons. One of them was at the depth of about five feet; the other was at the depth of three feet; the bones of both very sound; the teeth of both much worn; the coffins of both appeared to have passed the fire; the upper one seemed the most burnt. With the upper one was the head of a pilum, as before; it lay on the right side: the blade of a knife, and an iron buckle. With the undermost was found the blade of a knife, as before; an iron ringle; several nails; and several pieces of a small urn of greenish glass, broken before.
