During your archaeological research in the once thriving Southern California area of North America, you find the remains of a 21st century building that was once known as a “tract house.”  At the north-east corner of the house’s remains is a plastic trash receptacle known as a “trash can.”  Inside the trash can are the remains of trash that is typical for this time period.  Because the trash is located in one receptacle, and is associated with a single housing unit, we can be fairly certain that the trash found here comes from one single household.  Please look at the list of archaeological data below, and answer the questions.  There may be multiple interpretations!
