About this book

Recounts the remarkable story of `Kennewick Man', the ongoing controversy over the discovery of a 9,000 year-old `Caucasoid-like' skeleton where no one expected to find one - in the Pacific Northwest. The author uses this story, and controversies over other recent finds, to explore the fascinating changes that are occurring in scientific interpretation of the peopling of the Americas and in the practice of modern archaeology.
