Judge: Disputed Bones OK for Study



PORTLAND, Ore.- A federal judge Friday ordered the U.S. government to let scientists study the bones of Kennewick Man, an ancient skeleton that could offer rare clues to how the first people arrived in America.

The 9,300-year-old bones have been the center of an intense legal battle between scientists, who want to study the remains, and the federal government, which had ruled the bones belong to Northwest tribes who claim the remains as an ancient tribal member.

"Allowing study is fully consistent with applicable statutes and regulations, which are clearly intended to make archaeological information available to the public through scientific research," wrote U.S. Magistrate John Jelderks.

Jelderks had repeatedly criticized the Army Corps of Engineers and the Interior Department for how they handled the dispute.

The judge had said he felt the corps made a hasty decision to recognize a tribal claim to the bones. He has also criticized the government for delaying tests on the age of the bones and delaying its response to questions about determining cultural affiliation with modern tribes.

Scientists want to study the skeleton to see if it represents some unknown source of migration to North America apart from the traditional theory of people walking from Asia across a land bridge to North America.

Five tribes along the Columbia River are seeking possession of the bones to bury them.

The bones were found in July 1996 along the banks of the Columbia River near Kennewick, Wash. They are being stored at the University of Washington's Burke Museum until the case is resolved.

Scientists argued that former Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt overstepped his authority by ruling the skeleton was culturally affiliated with Northwest tribes.

Babbitt argued that the tribes had an oral tradition of history in the general area where the bones were found.

Babbitt was acting under a federal law intended to prevent theft and illegal trafficking of American Indian artifacts, protect tribal burial sites and restore the remains of ancestors to the tribes.

The law says that federal agencies or museums shall return remains or associated objects to tribes that request them and can show a direct link to the artifacts. The scientists, however, argued that no group can establish a direct link that extends 9,000 years.

"Babbitt said oral tradition trumped everything else," said anthropologist Richard Jantz at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, one of the scientists who sued the government to block the return of the bones to the tribes.

The scientists said it was extremely rare to find a nearly intact skeleton so old. Initial analysis also indicated it differed from modern American Indian tribes, prompting speculation about whether it supported theories such as several waves of migration from different parts of Asia to populate North America.

Dana Perino, spokeswoman for the Justice Department in Washington, D.C., said government attorneys would have to review the ruling before they could comment.

The scientists said they were happy with the ruling, but emphasized it was a legal battle against a government agency's interpretation of the law, not tribal tradition.

"I'm sure Native Americans see it differently, but this suit was against the government, not the Indian tribes," said Jantz.

The case has cost taxpayers an estimated $3 million, according to lawyers for the scientists.

China baffled by 'alien' pyramid

June 20, 2002 Posted: 4:44 AM EDT (0844 GMT)

Staff and wires

BEIJING, China -- A team of Chinese scientists is to head out to the far west of the country to investigate a mystery pyramid that local legend says is a launch tower left by aliens from space.

Nine scientists will travel this month to probe the origins of the 50-60 meter (165-198 ft) tall structure -- dubbed "the ET relics" -- in the western province of Qinghai, China's state-run Xinhua agency said on Wednesday.

The mystery pyramid sits on Mount Baigong, has three caves with triangular openings on its facade and is filled with red-hued pipes leading into the mountain and a nearby salt water lake, Xinhua said.

Rusty iron scraps, pipes and unusually shaped stones are scattered around the inhospitable and largely uninhabited area, it said. ET theory

A research fellow at a nearby observatory of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Yang Ji, told Xinhua the theory the pyramid was created by extra terrestrials was "understandable and worth looking into."

"But scientific means must be employed to prove whether or not it is true," Yang said.

Xinhua has not given any details on the age of the structure, or any other possible explanations for it. But a study carried out by a local smeltery suggests the pipes are very old, Liu Shaolin, the engineer who carried out the analysis, told Xinhua.

These findings have made the site more mysterious, says Qin Jianwen, a spokesman for the Delingha government.

"Nature is harsh here. There are no residents let alone modern industry in the area, only a few migrant herdsmen to the north of the mountain," Qin said.

This will be the first time scientists are heading out to study the mysterious site near Delingha City in the depths of the Qaidam Basin, according to sources with the Haixi Mongolian and Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture.

Scientists Try To Solve Mystery Of Columbus' Remains

Researchers Start Project By Digging Up Famous Explorer's Brother

Posted: 12:46 p.m. EDT September 18, 2002
Updated: 1:08 p.m. EDT September 18, 2002

MADRID, Spain -- More than 500 years after his famous voyage, Christopher Columbus is the object of another discovery project: the effort to figure out where he's buried.

As a first step, researchers have dug up the remains of Columbus' brother, Diego, near Seville, Spain. But there's another problem: scientists aren't sure the bones belonged to Diego. His remains, like his famous brother's, were moved several times.

Christopher Columbus died in Spain and was buried there. But his remains were moved to what is now known as the Dominican Republic, then back to Spain.

The Dominicans contend the Spanish actually took the bones of Columbus' son. So, both Spain and the Dominicans claim to have the real body.

Scientists hope to do DNA tests on those bodies, as well as that of Columbus' son, and his brother.
