corner of the tomb. Behind the body, on the right, were the remains of one or two short sticks. On opening the pad of mud on the left side of the body, this was found to contain organic matter, and what appeared to be decayed wood. I was at first under the impression that the arm was in a splint, but it did not appear to be broken. On the wrist was a gold band, with the ends pierced, and a gold disc with a hole in the middle. The tie which passed through the hole in the end of the band and the hole in the disc, had decayed. Underneath this were a few beads, apparently from a second bracelet. Under the right wrist were two beads of gilt copper, and a glazed bead. At the ankles, one glazed bead.
