Small tumulus; grave not above a foot and a half deep. No appearance of a coffin; the bones of a middle-aged, or rather young person, very perfect; and the teeth sound, regular, and white. Near the neck were two thin silver ornaments, or pendants for it [M 6470]; one silver ring with a small yellow bead strung on it, as before; two silver rings, with sliding knots, as before; two amethysts and forty-five small beads; about the knees was an iron instrument. A woman's grave.
