Stewart Castle Main House Harris Matrix
The Harris Matrix summarizes stratigraphic relationships among excavated contexts and groups of contexts that DAACS staff has identified as part of the same stratigraphic group. Stratigraphic groups and contexts are represented as boxes, while lines connecting them represent temporal relationships implied by the site’s stratification, as recorded by the site’s excavators (Harris 1979).
There is currently no Harris Matrix for the Stewart Castle Main House, since the 2007 excavations only consisted of shovel-test-pits. A Harris Matrix will be generated as units with recorded stratigraphic relationships are excavated.
