Bayesian Chronological Modeling Workshop - University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM


The University of New Mexico, Department of Anthropology will host its first ever Bayesian Chronological Modeling Workshop in Albuquerque on April 9–10, 2019. 

Dr. Derek Hamilton from the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Center (SUERC) at the University of Glasgow and Dr. Tony Krus from the University of South Dakota, will teach this two-day interactive workshop. Space is very limited, so sign up now to learn how to develop and critically evaluate archaeological applications of Bayesian chronological modeling.


Day 1 (Tuesday, 9 April 2019, 09:00 to 16:30) Bayesian Modeling for Beginners will cover an introduction to radiocarbon dating and Bayesian chronological modeling with a series of practical exercises on calibration and the construction of simple 'Phase' and 'Sequence' models that form the building blocks of more complex chronological models.


Day 2 (Wednesday, 10 April 2019, 09:00 to 16:30) Advanced Modeling Techniques will cover the more advanced features in OxCal. We will cover marine and mixed-calibration model, age-depth and tree-ring sequence models, and finally discuss the use of simulation in the modeling process.


A printed workbook designed for the workshop will also be provided to all participants. The workbook will include descriptions of fundamental chronological modeling techniques, exercises demonstrating different techniques, and an annotated bibliography of key literature.

Dates: April 9-10, 2019

Cost: The cost for a 2-day ticket is $95 for students and $195 for non-students.
