Cairn continued:-

(see sketch) composed of coarse fire clay leaden over, and a Horse Shoe, broad at the heel and narrow inside, it was very much corroded but six nail holes could easily be seen in it (see sketch). The Urn, Drinking Cup and Horse Shoe were deposited in a circular built grave, 4 feet wide and 9 feet deep, and pounded all around with fine clay leading from the bottom of the grave was a built drain for the apparent purpose of keeping the place dry (see Sketch). Large quantities of wood char were found among the stones over the grave, and from the appearance of the stones, it is thought that the bones had been charred on the place.
