These 1997 photos show a plastic casting of the skull from the bones known as Kennewick Man. A scientist who studies the ancient skeleton says Kennewick Man wasn't from the Columbia River Valley where his bones were buried. Smithsonian anthropologist Doug Owsley told tribal representatives that isotopes in the bones indicate he was a hunter of marine mammals such as seals, and that he lived most of his life on the coast.
