In my opinion, based on my interpretations after I learned about the seriation technique, the order would be vessel A, vessel C, vessel J,vessel B, vessel G, vessel K, vessel I, vessel F, vessel D, vessel E, vessel L, vessel J, and vessel H. This seriation attempt made based on the information that vessel B is older than vessel L, the shapes, decorations, and all other details given about each vessel is also considered.
The only vessel that I think it will not fit really well in the sequence is vessel A, due to its unique shape that makes it looks like farther apart in time compared to the other vessels. Also, the decoration is totally different, its decoration spanned over the entire surface of the vessel rather than having them only on the spout, the body or the stirrup. Moreover, it is a combination of applique and punctate decoration which is not similar with all of the other vessels . With this in mind, I would hypothesize that vessel A is the oldest archaeological remain among the others. It is still a continuous developments, but there might be a bigger gaps in terms of time between vessel A and vessel C.
Features that I think helped me a lot to do this seriation is the decoration and the vessels’ height. When I looked up the images of each of the vessel, it seems like the categorization flows based on their height which created a big group and then shifting its decoration overtime. The other thing that also helped a lot in figuring out the sequence is a clue given in the beginning of the problem, which mentioned that vessel B is older than vessel L based on the law of superposition. This lead me to sort them based on the shape they have, which guide me to the conclusion where the cupcake-shaped vessels are more recent than the convex or concave shape.
According to the seriation technique I used to order these vessels, the way people decorate their vessels have shift from punctate decoration all the way to an alternating bands decoration, which then ended up with a combination of both punctate and alternating bands decoration. I believe that this stylistic differences on the vessels have a relevancy with cultural developments overtime. The level of complexity in terms of the decoration, shape, and color on their vessels might also have improved overtime.
