Nos. CCXVI.-CCXIX-yielded no relics except a bronze buckle and two knives; they were probably women's graves. No. CCXVII. was nine feet long by four wide, and five and a half deep. It reminded me of No. IV., and when it yielded only a small rusty knife I was sufficiently disappointed. One point in it, however, was worthy of note, that the body had evidently been placed upon a bier or in a coffin, two planks apparently set edgewise, about twelve inches high and one thick, being traceable down the whole length of the grave, and a piece of wood four inches square lying at the head and at the feet. No. CCXVIII. was equally large.
