the beads and shell being the relics of a woman, the spear-head of a man.
No. CCXXXIX.—A very long grave, but very ill-shaped. A small bronze buckle, a rude iron buckle, and some fragments of wood stained with iron.
No. CCXL.—Burnt or decayed wood in some quantity. By the left shoulder, a spear-head of unusual shape, and its socket, both vertically placed, as in Nos. CCXXXVII. and CCXXXVIII. Also a large knife, and a black earthen vessel at the foot, too fragile to be preserved.
Nos. CCXLI.—CCXLTII.—Only an iron ring, a small bronze buckle, and a knife.
No. CCXLIV.—Disturbed. Shield-studs, and fragments of bronze and iron. At the foot, a flat piece of iron with two flattened circular knobs upon it; a spearhead lay in the cist at the head of the grave.
No. CCXLV.—A small knife; at the feet, clench-bolts.
CCXLVI., CCXLVII.—Children’s graves.No relics.
