It contained the remains of a human body, which had been laid on its right side with the face towards the south. The limbs had been bent upwards, and it appeared that one of the leg bones had been broken near the middle. An urn about six inches in depth and 28 in circumference, was found lying in the tomb, as if it had been folded in the arms of the corpse. Upwards of a hundred jet beads were discovered over the breast of the corpse, perhaps having formed ornaments on the edge of the Urn." (New Stat Act [Statistical Account] Page 250-1)
