CCXX. This was an interesting interment. Commencing at the feet, our usual practice, and working upwards, we found two urn-shaped glass vessels [KAS 259 & KAS 259A], close together. A thin circular stud of silver [KAS 288] next appeared, some iron keys (one quite perfect, a very rare occurrence), a large bronze ring, and a flat bronze stud-head. On the breast, about thirty beads [KAS 277] of porcelain, glass, and amethystine quartz; also an iron fragment, apparently a mounting for a purse, a broken knife, and an iron bolt.
