2500bc-14/1300bc A miniature ditched bowl barrow containing the inhumation of an adult male lying on the left side, probably contracted. At the right shoulder was a fragmentary A Beaker, and a shale button with V-shaped perforation, a flint punch, an end-scraper and a waste flake with cortex. At the feet were 6 fine flint arrow heads with long barbs (3 undamaged) together with a flint flake with spur removed and used edge, and a well made square-ended flint knife flaked for hafting. Some glutinous material was on some of the arrow heads.

An ashy bed was spread over the burial, and near the surface was found 'a human jaw and other bones, also a stag's horn'.
