This text explains to new readers the various methods of multivariate analysis used in archaeological practice. It focuses on the techniques available, including: principal component analysis; correspondence analysis; cluster analysis; and discriminant analysis. Critically reviewing their use in practice, the book describes other areas in which they could be usefully applied. Methods where software packages are available are emphasized.

Aldenderfer in American Antiquity "[A]n excellent tool and reference for the practicing archaeo-statistician, as well as for the novice who wishes to get acquainted with multivariate statistical methods. In it one obtains practical advice from an experienced practitioner . . . . I like this book and recommend it." Kenneth L Kvamme in Archaeological Computing Newsletter "[A] no-nonsense account of the main multivariate techniques used in archaeology . . . . The style is straightforward and clear, and well in tune with the needs of the reader. . . . The tone is balanced and reasonable . . . . [F]or anyone who analyses multivariate data in archaeology."
