Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A statistical text tied to archeological examples digging into the fundamental principles and applications of quantitative data analysis for use in the field or laboratory. Drennan (U. of Pittsburgh) demonstrates how statistics can augment archeological research without patronizing the non-statistician, exploring the significance of relationships between variables, and topics in sampling which incorporate particular archeological research concerns such as how much support a set of data can provide for a conclusion, and the implications of random sampling. The text includes over 100 illustrations to help make its point. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
