Novel Statistical Techniques in Archaeology II (QUANTARCH II)

Part of: Society for American Archaeology 84th Annual Meeting, Albuquerque, NM (2019)

This collection contains the abstracts of the papers presented in the session entitled "Novel Statistical Techniques in Archaeology II (QUANTARCH II)," at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

Statistical data modeling is fundamental to archaeological inquiry. This type of modeling is

applicable to all research questions, and serves to evaluate how well archaeological observations

support theoretical expectations. Pioneering archaeological questions, however, are not always

answerable with standard techniques - requiring development of innovative modeling methods. The

purpose of this symposium is to exhibit the range of cutting-edge analytical techniques advanced to

evaluate novel archaeological hypotheses. Symposium participants answer groundbreaking

archaeological hypotheses regarding cultural variability by developing or adapting a wide range of

analytical modeling methods derived from computational, mathematical, spatial, statistical, and

graphical approaches. (This topic spans two poster symposia)
