Network Science and Statistical Techniques for Dealing with Uncertainties in Archaeological Datasets

Empirical archaeological datasets are rarely complete and introduce sampling and missing data issues into all types of data analyses, including network analyses of archaeological data. Archaeology has a long tradition of dealing with sampling issues and missing data. In addition to applying archaeological techniques for addressing data-related challenges, network science and statistics offer a wide range of approaches to deal explicitly with missing data. Moreover, network analyses of incomplete or uncertain datasets always require tests to explore how robust analytical results are: how much do the unknowns in our dataset affect the certainty of our analytical results? Participants to this workshop will gain hands-on experience with statistical and network science techniques for working with the following challenges: Edge effects and sample size, Known uncertain data, Known missing data, Unknown missing data, and Robustness of network science results to missing data issues
