El Hatillo Household Dataset
The data files CERAMICPERIOD.TXT and CERAMICPERIOD.XLS contain the number of sherds of each period from the different proveniences excavated at El Hatillo. CERAMICPERIOD.TXT is a comma delimited ASCII text file, which should be easy to import into spreadsheet, database, and statistical programs for manipulation and analysis. CERAMICPERIOD.XLS contains the same data in the form of an Excel spreadsheet which is easier to browse, and can also be imported into many programs. Each line on the comma delimited file represents one provenience. There are 195 lines, each with 16 variables separated by commas. The variables are, in the following order:
|4||Number of Mendoza Period sherds|
|5||Number of EL Hatillo Period sherds|
|6||Number of Parita Period sherds|
|7||Number of Macaracas Period sherds|
|8||Number of Conte Period sherds|
