Description: Create one summary Excel chart and answer four questions about a Late Woodland bioarchaeology data set. The Excel data file (provided on Canvas in the Late Woodland module) includes two worksheets, one with Mortality data and one with Dental Caries data. Late Woodland Excel Dataset Download Late Woodland Excel Dataset Your Excel chart and responses to the questions will all be submitted as a single, printed document in class. You will base your brief answers on the results of your independent manipulation of original data set using analytical tools included with the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet software. The ultimate goal is to advance a concise bioarchaeological explanation of the observed patterns. Your answers should be given with reference to the background information about Late Woodland bioarchaeology. Specific Deliverables and Questions: Create a single Word document to contain your responses to the five prompts below. Be sure to include your name on the document. Create one Excel chart that clearly depicts the Mortality data and its major patterns/trends. Be sure to clearly label the chart. Include the Excel chart in the same document that contains your answers to the following questions. Based on examination of the Mortality data worksheet and your chart, answer this question in single sentence: At what age interval were Late Woodland people first at a significant risk of death, and what was the second point in life (age-wise) that Late Woodland people began to face a sharp jump in the probability of death? After examining the Dental Caries worksheet, which of the Late Woodland groups would you infer to have had the strongest reliance on a maize-based diet? What is your specific evidence for that conclusion? (Be brief in your answers.) In a single sentence explain the cause-effect relationship between a maize-based diet and dental caries. Of all the groups listed in the Dental Caries worksheet, and based on what you have learned, which of them do you believe was at the highest risk of nutritional deficiency, and why? (Answer in a single sentence.)
