But that, of course, is not good enough for your modern, headline grabbing archaeologists, and this lot have ginned up a fake controversy using science that has been obsolete for decades to generate some attention:
The genetics of modern Native Americans would certainly appear to link them into this story. But their facial features set them apart from the oldest skeletons now being unearthed.
These ancient people had narrower, longer skulls. The differences have hinted that perhaps there were multiple immigrations from Siberia (or even Europe).
So, hey, it's cool that they dove into a cave and found a human skeleton in the murk, and cool that it is 12,000 years old, and also cool that it confirms the reigning model of how Indians got here. Discoveries don't have to change anything to matter.
