CCLX. Two interments, a woman and a child. A minute ring of silver-wire between the knees of the child, and a small circular fibula beside it; nearer the head, a still smaller fibula. A bronze ornament, broken, and very imperfect, but with the upper portion containing two garnets. Twenty-six beads [KAS 438], four being black bugles, and most of the others amber [KAS 292], lay near the neck of the larger skeleton. A bronze ring and a fragment of green glass [AS 60], probably Roman, were at the feet. The fibula first discovered is of bronze-gilt, an inch in diameter, and of saucer-shape, an unusual type in Kent, with scrolled ornament, a sharp raised outer edge, and a garnet in the centre. The smaller fibula, little more than half its size, has also a garnet in the centre, and is ornamented with two raised beadings.
