Cero Macareno's tablet: Exploratory data analysis around a piece of archeology (La tableta de Cero Macareno: Análisis exploratorio de datos en torno a una pieza de arqueología).

By Iñigo Saez-Uribarri

Abstract

Cerro Macareno’s tablet is a piece of fired clay with many incisions that pose puzzling chronological and functional queries. The information provided by the incisions has been studied with the purpose of elucidating their function. Following a coding process, several statistical techniqueshave been used. It has been proven that incisions are not randomly distributed. And while the idea that they might stand for some kind of writing loses weight, the fact that the piece may be a record of some event taking place over the time and/or space horizon is gaining importance
