Relative dating: Seriation
For this extra credit assignment, you will do your own seriation of archaeological artifacts to determine the relative ages of a number of archaeological sites (youngest to oldest). You will complete this seriation using the same method as is outlined in the video below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PndDsTQiQDU

(Get in touch with Prof. Sheila if the data is not displaying properly for you.)
For this assignment, you will submit a photo of your seriation to Blackboard. Follow the steps in the video:
1) On a single piece of paper, draw out bars to represent the numbers of artifacts of each type at each site, 
2) Cut the paper into strips so each site is on one strip, 
3) Rearrange the strips so that there is a smooth increase and decrease in artifact frequencies over time. Take a photo of your result, and upload the photo to this submission page. 
This extra credit assignment must be submitted on BrightSpace by Sunday, June 16. If you want to check your work with the instructor before that date, email a picture of your progress for feedback by Saturday, June 15. You can earn up to 10 points extra credit for completing the seriation correctly.
