and curiously marked and designed, the predominating hues being red, blue,
brown, green, and yellow.
LXXXI.—Disturbed; the deepest grave opened at Sarr, being six feet
from the surface. Its length was nine feet, and its width nearly five.
At the head of the grave was a small bronze pin, a spear-head with its
ferule, both broken, and apparently before burial; part of a
shield-brace. A small piece of yellow clay, about the size of a walnut,
was found on the chalk floor of the grave.
