Caption: Clay reconstruction of the Kennewick Man. The face was reconstructed from a skeleton discovered on 28th July 1996, on the bank of the Columbia river (near Kennewick, Washington State). Its Caucasian features indicated that it belonged to a recent European pioneer, but a projectile in his side suggested it predated the arrival of the Europeans to North America. The Native American tribe, Umatilla, therefore fought for the remains to be buried according to traditional religious beliefs. But the scientific community eventually won. The skeleton was indeed found to be around 9,300 years old, making it one of the oldest skeletons to be found in North America, and of great interest in the understanding of migrations to the New World.
