Grave east and west, as the former, about three feet deep. No signs of any bones but those of the thighs, and they were almost gone; here we met with nothing; but in digging out the sand, and about half way down, we found the sherds of a pretty largish urn of coarse black earth, broken, I suppose, by those who dug the grave for the person here deposited; a shrewd sign, surely, that this spot has been a burying place, perhaps even before the custom of burning the dead ceased. [1] [1]As he proceeded with his excavations, Mr. Faussett became convinced that this notion, formed at so early a period of his researches, was correct.- C.R.S.
