This is a very good book that manages to transcend between technical and 'interesting to lay people'. The history of the skeleton is fascinating and the politics is riveting. The book is written so that the technical details can be read and studied without slowing down the reading for those of us less interested in the technical details. I love how each chapter has a section at the end for conclusions. Great book, two thumbs up. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Almost from the day of its accidental discovery along the banks of the Columbia River in Washington State in July 1996, the ancient skeleton of Kennewick Man has garnered significant attention from scientific and Native American communities as well as public media outlets. This volume represents a collaboration among physical and forensic anthropologists, archaeologists, geologists, and geochemists, among others, and presents the results of the scientific study of this remarkable find. Kennewick Man: The Scientific Investigation of an Ancient American Skeleton is written for a discerning professional audience, yet the absorbing story of the remains, their discovery, their curation history, and the extensive amount of detail that skilled scientists have been able to glean from them will appeal to interested and informed general readers. These bones lay silent for nearly 9,000 years, but now, with the aid of dedicated researchers, they can speak about the life of one of the earliest human occupants of North America."--Back cover.… (more)
