The Smithsonian Institution will host its first ever Bayesian Chronological Modeling Workshop for the 83rd Annual Society for American Archaeology (SAA) Meeting in Washington, DC.

Day 1 Bayesian Modeling for Beginners will cover an introduction to radiocarbon dating and Bayesian chronological modeling. Day 2 Advanced Modeling Techniques will provide more practical work with creating complex models. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

• critically interpret chronological data
• use Bayesian chronological modeling software
• model the time and length of archaeological phases • publish and critically review models
• understand advanced modeling techniques

Register for the workshop at: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/bayesian-chronological-modeling-workshop-tickets-36821622464

A printed workbook designed for the workshop will also be provided to all participants. Participants are required to bring a laptop equipped with OxCal (a free, user-friendly software package).
