On today's episode we talk about context. Why is it almost more important where and artifact was found rather than what was found? Why should you leave artifacts in place how you found them? We answer some of those questions and more on today's episode.
Chris Webster sits down with Edward Harris and Cinzia Perlingieri at SAA2017 to talk about the Harris Matrix - a stratigraphic model that allows archaeologists to see time on archaeological sites. It is based upon the unravelling of the stratification of the site, its surfaces and strata, to compile the stratigraphic sequence of a site; the essential task of the excavating archaeologist.
