mortAAR: Analysis of Archaeological Mortality Data

A collection of functions for the analysis of archaeological mortality data (on the topic see e.g. Chamberlain 2006 <>). It takes demographic data in different formats and displays the result in a standard life table as well as plots the relevant indices (percentage of deaths, survivorship, probability of death, life expectancy, percentage of population).
