Grave as the last, and about three feet deep. Black remains of a coffin: bones almost gone: nineteen small glass and earthen beads, and one large striped one; these were near the place of the neck: and a little lower, a round brass fibula subnectens, of a different sort from any yet described [M 6063] ; it has a round hole in the middle, and seems to have been encrusted, or enamelled with red; some remains of it still remain visible in the six sockets on the circumference.[1]Here was also the blade of a small knife, and some long nails. A woman's grave.[1]This is of Roman manufacture; it resembles one found at Ixworth; Coll. Ant. vol. iii, pl. xxxvi, fig. 5,- C.R.S.
