Abstract

Stratigraphic data form the backbone of archaeological records from most excavated sites and, along with the phasing and interpretive information derived
through stratigraphic analysis, are essential for chronological modelling, broader synthesis of inter-site phases and periods and, we argue here and elsewhere, should be a required component in digital archives of the growing body of archaeological data and reports generated through the commercial archaeological sector in the UK and internationally (May, Taylor, Binding 2023). The stratigraphic record that quantifies, characterizes and sequences the different types of stratigraphic units [...] is a primary piece of ‘evidence’ for how, and in what order, a site was excavated.
