Although not as well known as stratigraphic excavation, two other methods of relative dating have figured important in Americanist archaeology: seriation and the use of index fossils.

Although not as well known as stratigraphic excavation, two other methods of relative dating have figured important in Americanist archaeology: seriation and the use of index fossils. The latter (like stratigraphic excavation) measures time discontinuously, while the former - in various guises - measures time continuously. Perhaps no other method used in archaeology is as misunderstood as seriation, and the authors provide detailed descriptions and examples of each of its three different techniques

In archaeology, seriation is a relative dating method in which assemblages or artifacts from numerous sites, in the same culture, are placed in. .Seriation, Stratigraphy, and Index Fossils: The Backbone of Archaeological Dating. New York: Plenum Press.

Where absolute dating methods, such as carbon dating, cannot be applied, archaeologists have to use relative dating methods to date archaeological finds and features. Seriation is a standard method of dating in archaeology. It can be used to date stone tools, pottery fragments, and other artifacts.

A recent monograph about seriation by O'Brien and Lyman includes an extended discussion of the terminology, and a consensual definition by Marquardt . Seriation is a method for relative dating.

A recent monograph about seriation by O'Brien and Lyman includes an extended discussion of the terminology, and a consensual definition by Marquardt (p. 258): a descriptive analytic technique, the purpose of which is to arrange comparable units in a single dimension (that is, along a line) such that the position of each unit reflects its similarity. The purpose of seriation is to arrange archaeological entities into a relative chronological sequence based on their formal properties.

tions to the project. We picked these three seriation, superposition and stratigraphy, and cross-dating through the use of index fossilsfor several reasons, not the least of which is that together they have long formed the backbone (Tozzers spine) of archaeological dating.
