No tumulus, grave, two feet and a half deep; the bones remarkably perfect; no appearance of a coffin. Near the hips were a largish blade of a knife, six and a half inches long; and a brass buckle and wrought shank [M 6534]. About the knees lay the head of a pilum, with its point downwards towards the feet, and close to it was the ferrule and spike, by which it seems as if the pilum had been broken at its interment. On the right side of the feet was an urn of coarse earth [M 6533]; it is capable of containing about three pints.
Date excavated9th August, 1772
