Did you uncover the find exactly the way it was originally
laid down? Explain.
(The movement of the sand shifted some of the artifact
factors affected the success of your archeological dig?
(The amount that the sand moved, the steadiness of
the brush, etc.)
might the type of soil affect your success in uncovering
(Soil that doesn't shift keeps the artifacts in place)
The principle of superposition involves the relative positions
of objects as they relate to the sequence of their burial.
Objects that were buried first occupy a position at the
bottom of the stack. Objects that were buried more recently
are found at the top of the stack. Use this principle to
create a top -to-bottom stack that illustrates the most
likely sequence of the following objects, if they were uncovered
in the same column of sediment:
Model T Ford
(Answer: Volkswagen, Model T Ford, woolly mammoth,
T-Rex, trilobite, first living cell)
