Statistatics and Archaeology

Ashoka K. Mishra (Author)

This trailblazing book attempts to renovate and redirect archaeology by shifting it from a particularistic to a scientific foundation as an interdisciplinary discipline. Archaeology in the past decade, faces a massive shift in its research objectives, more and more of which can be reached only by building sophisticated systems models and applying quantitative methods in the analysis of artifactual data by statistical methods in studying how culture developed (cultural process) and with exploring relationship between environment and culture. This book introducing readers to the complexities of systems approaches, quantitative methods in the analysis of archaeological data to reconstruct the past, because this retrospective calculation is based on certain bedrock principle of statistics.

This book shows that the data and methods of archaeology and other branches of social sciences are powerful enough to provide a new way of analyzing our own society, thus giving discipline a worthy set of problems from its data. Induced at the back of the book are a glossary of archaeological and statistical terms which could be read in conjunction with this volume. The book is, therefore, essential reading for all archaeologists, anthropologists and social historians who use statistics as a tool in their research methodology.
