Description

The course, Analytical Methods in Archaeology, is designed to provide an overview of the role and application of numerical techniques in modern archaeological research. The course has two primary goals: 1) to explore the ways in which common statistical and numerical methods can be applied to diverse types of archaeological problems; and 2) provide the background necessary to evaluate the validity and usefulness of numerical applications in the archaeological literature. Throughout, the course will emphasize how numerical approaches are (and must be) embedded within well-constructed archaeological research designs. This is not a beginning statistics course and it is assumed that each student has a working of knowledge of common univariate and bivariate statistics, as well as a basic familiarity with modern archaeology.
