Some people would divide ancient societies into two types, those that are agricultralists, who grow plants on a plot and eat them, and pastoralists,
those that maintain herds and feed off of them. Pastoralists eat and drink a lot
I wouldn't agree that your timeline of lifespans is accurate either.
I would agree that simple things can have a huge impact. I have read that after man discovered agriculture, the use of such poor food sources (or at
least not wel rounded food sources) as these crops resulted in a big drop in health, the specimins from after those times are smaller and less
healthy, and that its only in the relatively modern era that people have recovered from that nutrition shock.
