Zooarchaeology is concerned with the analysis and inference of faunal remains recovered from archaeological sites. The zooaRchGUI package provides a Graphical User Interface (GUI) to analytical tools for zooarchaeological data in the R package. Functions in this package allow users to:

  • input
  • handle
  • visualize
  • and analyze zooarchaeological data

Useful data are available with the package. After installing and starting zooaRchGUI, users will have access to these data. Most datasets are in “wide format”. Included is Binford’s comprehensive forager dataset (Binford 2001) made available by Dr. Amber Johnson from http://ajohnson.sites.truman.edu/data-and-program/. Typing “?LRBdata” into the R (or RStudio) console provides information about the dataset. The key to this dataset is also available and provides users with descriptions of the variable names. The Binford dataset can be used as example for most functions in zooaRchGUI.
