Maltby beck excavation

This excavation shows the same sequence of deposits that have been exposed at Stainton beck, at roughly the same depth in relation to the surrounding land.

The image above shows how little soil cover there is above the aluvial deposit, less than 100 mm in places

The glove marks where the  deposit stops and the gravels start, then as in all my excavations the dense red clay below.
