Was their life expectancy...

A. 70-100 years or B. 30-35 years

The correct answer is...

B. 30-35 years

Lifespans were much shorter than nowadays and archaeologists think the average lifespan was about 30–35 years.

However, findings of bones have demonstrated that some individuals reached ages of around 60 years thanks to being cared for by their group.
