    In archaeology, seriation is a relative dating method in which assemblages or artifacts from numerous sites, in the same culture, are placed in chronological order. 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 .   Seriation, also called artifact sequencing, is an early scientific method of relative dating, invented (most likely) by the Egyptologist Sir William Flinders Petrie in the late 19th century. Petrie's problem was that he had discovered several predynastic cemeteries along the Nile River in Egypt.

    Different methods for relative dating are Stratigraphy (Law of Superposition), Time Markers, Index Fossil Concept, and Seriation. Different ways for absolute dating are using objects with dated inscriptions, dendrochronology, and radiocarbon dating. Absolute Dating is more precise than relative dating. Description: This book is the only text devoted entirely to archaeological stratigraphy, a subject of fundamental importance to most studies in archaeology. The first edition appeared in as a result of the invention, by the author, of the Harris Matrix--a method for analyzing and presenting the stratigraphic sequences of archaeological sites.

O'Brien (Author)Cited Seriation 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.

They provide detailed descriptions and examples of each of the three techniques of seriation, noting that two of these techniques measure time, and thus cultural change, as a continuum.".
