A very small tumulus; grave scarce a foot deep. No appearance of a coffin; bones almost gone. On the left side of the skull were the heads of two hastæ, each of them about eighteen inches long, and pretty narrow; here were also the conical umbo of a shield, as at No. 81; the cross piece as at No. 81; a small iron buckle; and the blade of a knife. I think this grave contained two corpses.
