The bones found scattered in the mud acquired a name: Kennewick Man. New research, never-before-seen photos of Kennewick Man's remains, and a lifelike facial reconstruction will introduce you to one of North America's earliest residents. Walker and Owsley also introduce you to a handful of other Paleoamerican skeletons, exploring their commonalities with Kennewick Man.
Together, their voices form a chorus to tell the complex tale of how humans came to North America—if we will only listen.
Once you’ve made your choice, unwrap your book and enjoy! WHEN: Our lunch Speed Dating session will take place on Thursday, February 16.
Participants will get to take a look over all the decorated books and choose their favorites over Papa Johns pizza.
Decorate your book however you want – your cover is all other students will see.
Then join us for a “speed dating” session where you take a look at all of the hand-decorated books and pick your new match without ever knowing the title.
