James C. Chatters, American forensic anthropologist. Chatters was one of the first to study the skeleton of the Kennewick Man, discovered accidentally on 28th July 1996 on the bank of the Columbia river (near Kennewick, Washington State). Originally identified as having Caucasian features, Chatters assumed the skeleton to be of a recent European pioneer. However, a projectile in his side was dated to between 9,500 and 8,000 BP. The skeleton was radiocarbon dated to be approximately 9,500 years old, making it one of the oldest human skeletons to be found in North America, and of great interest in the understanding of migrations to the New World. Photographed in 2001.
