Kennewick Man
FILE -- In this July 24, 1997 file photo, a plastic casting of the skull from the bones known as Kennewick Man, is seen in Richland, Wash. A scientist who studies the ancient skeleton known as Kennewick Man says he wasn't from the Columbia River valley where his bones were buried. Smithsonian anthropologist Doug Owsley told tribal representatives that isotopes in the bones indicate Kennewick Man was a hunter of marine mammals, such as seals and that he lived most of his life on the coast.
