Archaeology is not so far from sciences like Mathematics, and specially Statistics, as we can believe. Analyzing some statistical applications in Archaeology is the purpose of this project. First of all, a technique like the Categorical Data Analysis is explained. Secondly, we will study a non-parametric technique as the Kernel Density Estimation and a multivariate tool as the Classification and Regression Trees (known by its acronym CART). Finally, we will study a very common problem in Archaeology like it is the radiocarbon dating from the point of view of the Bayesian Statistics, what has increased its contribution to Statistics research in a spectacular way lately. All these techniques are illustrated with real examples from archaeological studies where each of them are used, as the R-software commands needed for its practical implementation.
