These laws permit archaeologists to work the stratigraphic relationships existing on an excavation site.During the 1950’s it was Sir Mortimer Wheeler who stressed the importance of stratigraphy for archaeological excavations.Archaeological Stratigraphy The laws of archaeological stratigraphy apply to all archaeological sites.
The whole will be seen against the background that recognises archaeological stratigraphy as the unintended outcome of human activity.
The record of these past activities can only be established by excavation, and where the Harris Matrix records the structure of a site destroyed by excavation.
The is based on extent, topographically, of a deposit or aninterfacial feature.
It will be seen that a basin of deposition will function as a boundary to an archaeological deposit.
