Tumulus, much as the last; grave four feet deep. The coffin had passed the fire; the bones were almost gone. A silver ring, set with a piece of amber [M 6515]; this, and the blade of a knife, lay near the right hip. In getting down to the skeleton were found many sherds of urns of different sizes; some bones of one or more beasts; several large iron nails; and a large piece of the same sort of coarse grit stones of which the covers to the two large urns before mentioned were made. It had also served for the same use, as appeared from the infundibuli-form foramen in its centre.
