Abstract

In the application of statistics in archaeology, it is essential to choose an appropriate statistical model for the specific archaeological problem being addressed. This article discusses the application of statistical models to large-scale archaeological field survey and describes the development of software (sherdnav) designed to guide fieldwalkers to where they should look next, once they have surveyed all the primary spots in a block, and its application to the Noviodunum Archaeological Project (NAP).
