Network Analysis in Archaeology

Leif Isaksen

Oxford University Press

This chapter identifies three themes in network analysis in archaeology: visualization, metrics, and experimentation. It begins with a high-level overview of some fundamental issues encountered by archaeological network analysts. It acknowledges that these are frequently tensions between conflicting demands and that there may be no ‘correct’ balance. The subsequent sections describe the demands of the three projects and the network approaches used to address them. This is followed in each case by a discussion of the strengths and limitations of the method adopted and, where known, suggestions as to how it might be improved.

Keywords:   network analysis, archaeology, visualization, metrics, experimentation
