After publication of our article, we found that Kamikuroiwa Iwakage site was wrongly categorized to the Early Jomon phase and counted doubly in the electronic supplementary material; however, the site should belong to the Initial phase. Also, the number of individuals at some sites were slightly wrong. We have therefore modified figure 1, table 1 and the electronic supplementary material (see also Dryad: http://dx.doi.org/10.5061/dryad.60d18). Following these modifications, some parts of the main text in §3. Results and §4. Discussion and conclusion have also been corrected as follows (corrected expressions are emphasized in bold). Note that these corrections do not affect our main conclusion at all.
… Nevertheless, the average violence mortality value across the entire Jomon period was found to be just 1.81%, much lower than those from previous studies (12–14%) [5,7,13].
4. Discussion and conclusion
… the values of mortality attributable to violence both over the entire Jomon period (1.81%) and in each phase (0–3.57%) are much lower than the ones in previous studies (12–14%) [5,7,13] …. In addition, we have found no injured individuals in the Early Jomon period (and perhaps also in the Initial phase, lasting for 5000 years or more, see the electronic supplementary material) though non-injured individuals were discovered for the period.
