The data files EXCCOUNTS.TXT and EXCCOUNTS.XLS contain ceramic counts (by type) from all of the test pits excavated in this study (the 2x1 m test pits excavated for chronological reconstruction and the 1x1 m test pits exacavated for the collection of botanical remains). EXCCOUNTS.TXT is an ASCII text file; EXCCOUNTS.XLS contains the same data in the form of an Excel spreadsheet. Each line represents one level from a test pit. There are 317 lines in the text file, each with four variables separated by commas. The variables are, in the following order:
|Test pit and level from which the sherds came from|
|Number of Bermejo Thick sherds|
|Number of Pituro Dark Polished sherds|
|Number of Cosanga sherds|
The first line of the ASCII text file, for example, looks like this:
This indicates that the data is for level 1 within test pit VQ001, where no Bermejo Thick sherds were recovered, no Pituro Dark Polished sherds were recovered, but which contained 8 Cosanga sherds.
The last (or 317th) line of the ASCII text file is:
This indicates that the data is for level 3 within test pit VQ046, where no Bermejo Thick sherds were recovered, no Pituro Dark Polished sherds were recovered, but which contained 1 Cosanga sherd.
