Instead of an abstract: In my work with Archaeologists I became aware of the gap between the thinking modes and languages used in the humanities and in the exact sciences. To bridge the gap I prepared a few talks explaining some mathematical concepts to the archaeologist. The present talk is one of this series. It might be entertaining to hard-core mathematicians as well. No previous knowledge of archaeology (or mathematics) is assumed.
