Tumulus and grave much as before. Bones very sound: teeth very firm and even: the coffin burnt, but not so much as some others. A beautiful urn of green glass [M 6117], capable of holding about half a pint or rather more; it stood on the right side of the skull, and was in the coffin; it is finely coated with armatura or electrum, both inside and outside, but especially on the inside. Here were also the blade of a knife, five iron nails, and several other bits of iron.
