We are now offering a new online course on statistical analysis for archaeologists using R. Anyone can take the course, but we can only award EC credits to ARCHON members.

The course consists of two parts, that can be accessed here:

Part 1: https://zenodo.org/record/4094686#.YSz2JPfitPY

Part 2: https://zenodo.org/record/5155471#.YSz2P_fitPY

To get the credits, take the tests provided and send an R script with the results to secretary@archonline.nl

IMPORTANT – before you start:

In order to do the course, you need to install RStudio and get familiar with its basic functions. An introductory Prezi is available to guide you through the first steps: https://prezi.com/view/doVKu74Vst9JjIYcGWAe.

About the course:

Part 1 treats the basics of data manipulation in R, and teaches you how to make simple visualisations from a list of numerical data. The purpose of this tutorial is to provide a relatively gentle introduction to R for working with archaeological datasets.

The purpose of part 2 is to extend the application of R from basic data analysis and visualisation to formal statistical testing. In this tutorial, we will treat the following statistical testing methods:

  • t-test
  • ANOVA
