It isn't possible to investigate all of a junkyard, so we'll pick a representative sample of the deposit.

We take our samples back to the laboratory, and count the kinds of artifacts in them, and discover that each of the junkyards have broken pieces of musical recording methods in them--old broken records, pieces of stereo equipment, 8-track cassette tapes.

Microsoft Excel (TM) has created for us a lovely stacked bar graph for us.

Seriation, also called artifact sequencing, is an early scientific method of relative dating, invented (most likely) by the Egyptologist Sir William Flinders Petrie in the late 19th century.

Petrie's problem was that he had discovered several predynastic cemeteries along the Nile River in Egypt that seemed to be from the same period, but he needed a way to put them in chronological order.

Larger percentages of artifact types are illustrated with longer bar snippets and smaller percentages with shorter bar snippets.

A good source of information about how to make charts in Excel is Ted French's Excel Chart Tutorial (for several different versions of Excel).

Absolute dating techniques were not available to him (radiocarbon dating wasn't invented until the 1940s); and since they were separately excavated graves, stratigraphy was no use either.

Petrie knew that styles of pottery seemed to come and go over time--in his case, he noted that some ceramic urns from the graves had handles and others had just stylized ridges in the same location on similarly shaped urns.

We don't have historical information about the junkyards--they were illegal dumping areas and no county records have been kept on them.

For a study we're doing on, say, the availability of music in rural locations during the 20th century, we'd like to know more about the deposits in these illicit junkyards.

The gramophone sat in your parlor and certainly couldn't be carried along with you and your earbobs. When 78 rpm records first appeared on the market, they were very rare.
