STEP 4.  Check the UPPER RIGHT CORNER of the info box

to see how many entries are in this location.  

( 1 of 2 ) means there are 2 different entries posted at this location. Click the forward arrow to see each separate entry.  Perhaps one class has uploaded 2 different artifacts, or perhaps 2 different classes at the same school have uploaded different artifacts. Sometimes it might even refer to another school close by.
