Diversity is a concept that is used to discuss variability in the archaeological record. Application of the concept of diversity requires the specification of a measure of diversity and a sufficient understanding of the quantitative behavior of the measure to permit inferences concerning the archaeological record. This paper discusses simple measures of the two dimensions of diversity. -from Author
