Tumulus and grave much as the last. The bones were very much decayed; the skull was very much deformed; the coffin did not appear to have passed the fire. Near the neck were five beads; and behind the skull appeared the remains of a small wooden box, with which lay an iron handle, as at No. 26; and an iron hasp, as at No. 26. Here were also the blades of two knives, and several nails. I think the grave of a woman. Here was also an iron instrument, as at No 142.
Date excavated29th July, 1771
