This volume presents four techniques of multivariate analysis commonly used by archaeologists (principal component analysis, correspondence analysis, cluster analysis and discriminant analysis). Employing 'ordinary language' and real data sets, and including extensive literature reviews, the book illustrates how these statistical techniques can be applied to specific archaeological questions. A new introduction by the author updates his discussion in light of subsequent developments in the field of quantitative archaeology. Originally published by Edinburgh University Press in 1994.
