Tumulus and grave much about the same as the last. The coffin appeared to have been much burnt, like those at Ash (without doubt to make it more durable). (See Browne, Urn-Burial, 4to. p. 13.) Here we found only two concatenated links of a chain, about an inch long each : the blade of a knife, as at No. 3; and some iron nails (concerning these sort of nails, see Stowe's Survey of London, fol. 178.)
