This fully revised second edition retains the hands-on simple approach of the first edition but with some significant modifications. Still covered in detail are descriptive and inferential techniques with each one worked through by hand on a common data-set, but new is a chapter covering an introduction to multivariate techniques. A new section provides SPSS PC programs designed with the beginner in mind. This book provides a practical manual to enable any archaeologist to start using statistics, as well as some more thoughtful considerations of the strengths and weaknesses of statistical methods and the results produced.
