Kolmogorov-Smirnov test in archaeology
Location: D'Arcy Thompson Room

Abstract: This seminar concerns the sites of medieval churches in Lothingland (the ‘island' situated between Geat Yarmouth and Lowestoft). Their distribution seems to be non-random, when looked at in relation to a hypothetical Roman survey grid. The Kolmogorov-Smirnov test measures how non-random it is, and gives a clear result.
Because this approach may not be immediately clear to archaeologists and historians, an interactive demonstration of the statistical technique has been developed and will be shown.
Further work to estimate the validity of the result from Lothingland, will also be described.
As far as possible, I will take a non-technical approach, in an attempt to show how it may be possible to convince the non-specialist of the potential significance of this particular application of the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test.
