If you remember, I asked once for the various skulls to be pictured together. I am only an amateur observer, but all appeared to be similar, even "Lucia" from the Dillahay South American site. I'm referring to skull only and not the reconstructed faces. Perhaps you are correct that Kennewick is not closely related, but my untrained eye sees similarity. However, you be the judge of that.
Useful DNA was recovered from under one of Kennewick's mokars, I believe. The ruling should cover that too.
It is fun to be on the leading edge of these discoveries. As they say on CSI, "Follow the evidence!" I add my thanks to the many for your wonderful posts.

They may all originate from a common population but seperated by thousands of years. I think one group took the Siberian route and one (or more groups) took the Atlantic route. I think the Kennewick Man type will prove to be the oldest and most dissimilar. Just an opinion.
