of archaeological interpretation. Seriation is a form of relative dating technique. With the assumption that artefacts changed with passing time in radical ways, archaeologist use seriation techniques to place artefacts in chronological order. Seriation is the changing of style of an object over time. Renfrew and Bahn explain that there are two versions of the seriation technique: contextual seriation and frequency seriation. Contextual seriation, also called sequenced dating is where artefacts are arranged according to the frequencies of their co- occurrence in specific context. In the nineteenth century Sir Flinders Petrie was the founding father of this type of seriation. He used this method to establish order in large Egyptian graves. Frequency seriation on the other hand, was established by an American archaeologist at a Mayan site in Yucatan 1940. The principle of frequency seriation relies predominantly on measuring changes in the proportional abundance, or frequency of a ceramic style. W.S. Robinson and G.W. Brainerd in their paper published in American Antiquity in 1951 hypostasised two statements about frequency seriation. “First, the assumed that pottery styles gradually become more popular, reach peak of popularity, and then fade away. Secondly, they argued that a given time period, a pot style popular at one site would similarly be popular at another.”(Renfrew and Bahn 2008, 128). Archaeologist such as James A. Ford working in American Southeast and Frank Hole in Iran were able to establish chronological validity using this method. “Nevertheless it should always be borne in mind that seriation by itself does not tell us which end of a given sequence is first and which last- the true chronology has to be determined by other means.”(Renfrew and Bahn 2008, 128).>GET ANSWER
