Small tumulus; grave two feet and a half deep. The coffin had passed the fire; the bones of a child, almost gone. Near the neck were two brass gilded ornaments, or pendants, for it [M 6488]; they are both of them exactly alike: one of them has a part of a thread or string, by which it hung, still in its eye or loop, as represented in the figure; it seems to have been made or composed of four strands of thread; it is very perfect; with them were twenty-one small beads; here were also several small link-like pieces of iron, some of them rusted together, and some lying more widely; and the blade of a knife.
