-====== Quantitative Archaeology Wiki ====== 
- 
-This wiki is dedicated to the development of free documentation about quantitative methods in archaeology,​ using free/open source software. 
- 
-===== Contents ===== 
- 
- 
-==== Digging Numbers ==== 
- 
- 
-Our first attempt is to rewrite the exercises for the textbook "​Digging Numbers"​ by Fletcher and Lock using the **''​R''​** statistical software. This part is still in development,​ so if you can help, please do it. ☛ [[diggingnumbers:​start|Go to the Digging Numbers exercises]]. 
- 
- 
-==== Sum of individual weighted means ==== 
- 
-This is a method to calculate with enhanced precision the chronological distribution of archaeological artefacts that have long time spans. ☛ [[sum of individual weighted means|Go to the weighted means page]] 
- 
-==== Contingency Tables ==== 
- 
-This is a basic introduction to frequency and contingency tables using **''​R''​**. A function for plotting Ford “battleship” diagrams is presented. ☛ [[contingency tables|Go to the contingency tables page]] 
- 
-==== Spatial Analysis ==== 
- 
-Tutorials about spatial analysis techniques using free geospatial software like GRASS, R and others. ☛ [[spatial_analysis:​start|Go to the spatial analysis introduction page]] 
- 
-==== Plotting quantitative pottery data ==== 
- 
-☛ [[pottery:​start|Go to the quantitative pottery data page]] 
- 
-==== Archaeometry ==== 
- 
-Statistical analysis is very often already included in the archaeometric study of materials. Here we try to perform some common analysis with the R programming language. ☛ [[archaeometry:​start|Go to the archaeometry page]] 
- 
-==== Monte Carlo simulation ==== 
- 
-Enrico R. Crema has some interesting R scripts for Monte Carlo simulation on his website: http://​www.homepages.ucl.ac.uk/​~tcrnerc/​Downloads.html 
- 
-==== Quantitative Archaeology summer school ==== 
- 
-Some brief notes taken at the [[qmdaa:​start|I-QMDAA Summer School]] in 2006. 
- 
- 
-===== Bibliography ===== 
- 
-We are collecting references to published manuals and journals about Quantitative Archaeology [[bibliography:​start|in this section]]. 
- 
- 
-===== Mailing List ===== 
- 
- 
-There'​s an [[http://​list.iosa.it|international mailing list]] to discuss about quantitative methods, free software in archaeology,​ open formats and more. The list is kindly hosted by the [[http://​www.linux.it|Italian Linux Society]]. 
- 
-However, the [[https://​groups.google.com/​forum/#​!forum/​antiquist|Antiquist]] Google Group is more active than “our” mailing list and you may get better answers there. 
- 
-===== About Quantitative Archaeology Wiki ===== 
- 
-This website is a wiki. This means that:  
-  - **you can contribute** and improve the existing documentation,​ even with small edits 
-  - anyone will be able to read, edit and possibly improve your contributions ​ 
- 
-You should contribute documentation about free and open source software, but general documentation about algorithms and statistical methods is also good. 
- 
-The documentation is released under the [[http://​creativecommons.org/​licenses/​by-sa/​3.0/​|Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported License]] (CC-BY-SA 3.0).

Follow the link to the license page to learn more about your rights. 
- 
-A brief **[[todo|TODO list]]** will be helpful to coordinate our work towards building a comprehensive guide to quantitative methods in archaeology. 
- 
-This wiki uses [[wiki:​dokuwiki|DokuWiki]] as backend. Documentation for editors is available on the Dokuwiki website. A brief [[wiki:​syntax|syntax reference]] can be accessed from each page while editing. 
- 
-The **Quantitative Archaeology Wiki** is hosted by the IOSA Project.
