(near the turnpike-gate on the Ramsgate road.) At the foot of the grave was a small hole containing human bones. Also about forty counters of bone or ivory [KAS 394], like those of grave No. VI, fifteen of which had two holes, penetrating some half inch, cleanly cut into their flat bottoms, doubtless a distinguishing mark; and with them were two dice, much decayed, one however bearing the mark of cinq, the other that of six, exactly as in modern dice, distinctly visible.In this grave were also two gilt stud-heads or rivets [KAS 478], still quite bright; a bronze buckle, and one of iron, and two small spear-heads. The grave measured seven feet by four. The lower end had been disturbed.
