Tarrago's work (1989) seriated 1442 San Pedro tombs according to recurrent material combinations employing three external chronological markers: Tiwanaku, Inka and Colonial objects, stratigraphic relationships of superposition between tombs, and 40 TL dates provided by Berenguer and colleagues (1986; 1988).
It can be seen in Figure 9b that Shohei seriated these blocks according to their stability (column 2 under logico-mathematical knowledge).
His remarks are pure parataxis and they become hypnotic as a result, an effect seen most clearly when his statements are presented in the seriated way in which he delivered them:
The longitudinal septa separating columns of chondrocytes in the seriated zone of the growth plate represent the site of early mineralization and are formed from interterritorial matrix.

Although there is no visible stratigraphic evidence of the abandonment and reoccupation implied by the discontinuities in the seriated sequences, they are supported by large differences in the radiocarbon dates from successive levels in the same excavation.
Projecting the diameter of the nuclear area around the locations of the sites of the Jamari Phase reveals that the boundaries of all but four overlap, and that three more would also overlap if the surrounding ring were included, supporting the interpretation of intermittent occupation based on the seriated sequences.
The fetuses were dehydrated and encased in blocks of paraffin for completion of seriated sections with thickness of 6 [micron]m.
