After clustering, the dendrogram shows all the clustered points and I get the ordering and height and the agglomerative coefficient. But nowhere do I see the three actual points listed. Although agnes clusters until there is one main cluster, it is clear that at three clusters, each of the clusters consist of points around the three main points. I was wondering if there was any way in which I can have R give me the actual cluster points at three (or any number, for that matter) clusters, ie (0,0), (0,1) and (1,0). A visual display of the clusters would be even better.

See the example of ?agnes, where the points are labeled.
Most easily use agnes() on a data.frame with rownames.
