boards had been mended, two pieces being tied together with ropes. It was placed in S 70°W — N 70°E, and near it were lying a few human bones. Otherwise it did not yield any objects. A narrow pole, nearly 2 m. long, had probably been erected as a monument (cf. 7 A) .
On the top of the hillock I saw the two shorter ends of a coffin of the same type as the one just mentioned (= Fig. 26), but I could not make out if they belonged to 7 B or to a fourth coffin.
Poles on top of mound.
At the top of the mound there were also some low poles, much worn by the weather, standing in an irregular circle, see plan Fig. 21. When digging in the sand filling this "enclosure" the neck of an earthenware pot came to light, Fig. 35 : 9. Probably these poles were erected as some sort of grave monuments as a very poor imitation of the imposing monuments on Cemetery 5. The irregular shape, and in fact the whole arrangement hardly favour the assumption that these remains are those of a hut.
