This fragment is of the same material as the...
Pagina 36 - The two others were at the distance of a few feet from those of the ordinary size, with the head of one lying on the breast of the other.

Pagina 35 - Many of the same articles were found on the surface; and at the extremities of this, as in the former barrows, such as burnt human bones, bits of metal, &c. but on our approaching to the centre, at about the depth of four feet from the surface, a skeleton appeared in perfect preservation, lying with its head to the north ; but so tender as to crumble into dust with the least pressure : its posture, which was that of a person sleeping on his side, with the feet rather drawn up, one hand resting on...
