This workshop is an introduction to dental non-metric analysis.

Trait plaques are provided on-site for practice, and data collection will be conducted on archaeological skeletal remains. Statistical methods introduced will include principal components analysis (PCA) and the mean measure of divergence (MMD).

Basic knowledge of dental anatomy is required. No previous experience with R is necessary. A certificate of completion will be provided at the end of the workshop.
