Iruña-Veleiako indusketak goi mailakoak izan direla Harris Matrix arkeologi metodoa asmatu zuenarentzat. Ez dute antzekorik esaten Agustin Azkaratek, Julio Nuñezek, Juan Antonio Quiros-ek eta Belen Bengoetxeak... eta batzordeko txosten arkeologikoa sinatzen dutenek.
Examination of IruñaVeleia stratigraphic data, as expressed in the Reports. Excavation Method: From the photographs of the excavations, it seems clear that the archaeological excavation was carried out to the highest standards. This finds expression in the quality of the photographs and the considerable cleanliness of the site, as recorded in the hotographs. It may be presumed that the site was excavated by the stratigraphic method, rather than the older arbitrary system, for the surfaces shown in the photographs would not be obtained by that latter method. It is almost axiomatic that a cleanly conducted excavation is a good one. Dr. Edward Cecil Harris, MBE, JP, FSA, Executive Director, Bermuda Maritime Museum.
