Small tumulus; grave two feet deep. No appearance of a coffin the bones were almost gone. Near the neck was one small yellow bead; near the left hip was one large bead, which seems to have been made out of a common pebble, and inlaid, with a sort of vermicular or string-like trail [M 6501]; a large irregular shaped piece of amber, perforated with a hole quite through it [M 6502]: I think it is too large for a bead; one larger and one smaller bead. Here were also a pair of iron shears, as before; and many iron links of a small chain, rusted together, as before, and having some linen cloth adhering to them. A woman's grave.
