Tumulus and grave much as the last. Pretty sound bones of an old person; the coffin did not appear to have passed the fire. On the right side, but on the outside of the coffin, was the head of an hasta or spear, as at No. 2: an hemispherical umbo of a shield, as at No. 2: three broad-headed iron studs: two cross irons, as at No. 124: the blade of a knife: a small iron buckle, with a brass tongue, as at No. 129 ; and some nails.
Date excavated26th July, 1771
