Originally designed for use on urban historic sites (which stratigraphy tends to be horrendously complex and jumbled), the Harris Matrix is applicable to any archaeological site. There are several computer forms of the Harris Matrix available for purchase.
SourceThe best source for information about the Harris Matrix is the Harris Matrix project website. Software to help manage the matrix is listed in the Computer Software Programs for Archaeologists. More information on buried cities can be found in the article How do ancient cities become buried?.
