Monotone Regression – a Method for Combining Dates and Stratigraphy


(Bonn, Germany)

The Harris diagram is a well-known means to reconstruct the chronological sequence of archaeological contexts. Floating sequences, i.e. parallel strands in the diagram pose a problem, because the chronological sequence of the contexts is not fixed by stratigraphic relationships. Often additional dating information is available, for example dendrochronological evidence, radiocarbon data [...]

Digital Stratigraphy


Archaeology adopted a static model of stratigraphy from geology. This was done partly for the prestige gained through association with Sir Charles Lyell and his concepts of “uniformitarianism.” Although evidence for the effects of formation processes and post-depositional transformations upon the artifactual assemblage have long been recognised, they were often overlooked; largely – [...]

Reliability of digital archaeological models


(Berlin, Germany)

How accurate must a model be? Counter-question: For what use is the model intended? In this paper, I would like to introduce one of the problems of uncertainty which arose during 3D GIS model building. “The accuracy of reconstructed models of archaeological sites and stratigraphy is only as good as the [...]

What does the Harris Matrix mean? Some thoughts on the multilinearity of the stratigraphic sequence


(Uni Konstanz, Germany)

Most sites are made of any number of partially independent stratigraphic series, for wich many permutations are possible. These so called multilinear stratigraphic sequences are best visualised by the Harris Matrix, which can be advantageously employed as a tool for coping with this difficult phenomenon. Without the introduction of non-stratigraphic [...]

New archeological finds: Forum of the Roman colony Pola and Forum of the Roman municipium Nesactium, Istria, Archaeological museum of Istria, Croatia

(Archaeological museum of Istria, Pula, Croatia)

Systematic archeological research conducted in 2006, provided new information in the study of the continuity of life in the Roman town Colonia Iulia Pola. The availability of terrain determined the size of Roman Forum, which is 81 m long and 37,5 m wide on the north side, [...]

The Harris Matrix and its digital visualisation in rescue excavations in Lower Austria and Vienna


(Vienna, Austria)

This talk reports about the use of the Harris Matrix on large rescue excavations and the experiences made with the digital visualisation of the Matrix. From relatively small beginnings in 2003/2004, a series of large scale urban rescue excavations has taken place in Vienna, Tulln and Mautern, all [...]

WS 4 – Modern Theories and Technologies for Managing Stratigraphic Uncertainty

Chairs: David BIBBY / Irmela HERZOG / Michael DONEUS, Germany

Stratigraphy has a long tradition in archaeology, and since the publication of Edward C. Harris’ seminal volume “Principles of Archaeological Stratigraphy” in 1979, stratigraphic excavations have become standard in many places in the world. Over the last 25 years computer programmers have concerned themselves with [...]

Vorstellung erster Resultate (länderübergreifende Kartierung der Verbreitung von Burgen in Deutschland)


(1Speyer, Germany / 2Germany)

Als Praxistest für das Funktionieren der neuen Schnittstelle wurden georeferenzierte Fachdaten zum Thema „Burgen“ gewählt. Die Daten wurden in den einzelnen Bundesländern in den jeweiligen Fachdatenbanken ausgewählt und im ADeX-Format exportiert. Diese Daten konnten nun in diverse GIS- und Datenbanksysteme importiert werden und mittels dieser einzeln [...]
