CCLV. No fewer than eighty iron clench-bolts, which had perforated solid wood about three inches thick. They lay on both sides, and could not, I think, have been attached to shields, as supposed by some antiquaries. A shoulder-blade and an arm-bone lay above the skull. This grave was made on an incline of twelve inches at least, and was only separated from another grave by a narrow ridge of the chalk.
