Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book presents the particular statistical methodolgies which can be used to address specific issues and problems in archeology. Through in-depth case studies, the author illustrates how such techniques can be employed in the archeological context. The examples are taken from a wide range of countries and reflect the international nature of archeology, and its students and practioners. The technical level of the book is intermediate, and so is suitable for the academic, the professional archeologist and applied statisticians.
