Harris's fifth law

"The Law of Superposition

Law of Original Horizontal

Law of Original Continuity

Law of Stratigraphic Succession

These laws were published in 1979. A fifth law of archaeological stratigraphy has also been added following papers presented at the "Interpreting Stratigraphy a Review of the Art" conferences in the UK from 1992 - 2003." And is Law five 'There is no Law Five'? If not, can someone please add Law 5 to the article. 60.242.50.195 05:39, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Example Matrix

the example matrix is slightly wrong as the boxes are all the same where the cut should be in a separate box usually a circle when the other stratigraphy is in squares.

Really? I always worked thus - "Cut" = [1234] (or a rectangle) whilst a fill/deposit/layer was (5678) - or an oval with the context number in it

It should also be noted that this is very different from the Harris Matrix described in Corner detection —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.21.38.41 (talk) 23:28, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
