Description Locus 2 is defined by a brownish yellow soil which is distinctly fine grained and almost sandy in texture. It is noticeably different from the dark Locus 1 topsoil, and while retaining organic material does so in decreased numbers. Material from this locus is severely eroded, indicative of the soil type being an erosional fill, which is in keeping with its position at the bottom of a slope. Locus 2 extends across the entirety of CB56.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
