Chapter 2
Report on the Osteological Assessment of the "Kennewick Man" Skeleton (CENWW.97.Kennewick)
Joseph F. Powell and Jerome C. Rose

Table 13

Table 13 is comprised of 2 tables designed to summarize the probability of group membership for Kennewick Man in 8 regional modern (combined Howells and Hanihara data) and 13 Archaic samples based on size-corrected Mahalanobis' squared distances derived from 10 craniometric variables. The first table, detailing the statistically closest populations, is comprised of 3 columns and 5 rows. From left to right the column headers read Closest Populations, Mahalanobis Distance, and Typical Probability. The 5 rows are comprised of varying statistical information corresponding to the column headers listed above. The populations detailed in the first column, reading from top to bottom are Indian Knoll Archaic, Ainu/Jomon, Amerindian, NE Asia, and SE Asia.

The second table, detailing the statistically furthest populations, is comprised of 3 columns and 5 rows. From left to right the column headers read Farthest Populations, Mahalanobis Distance, and Typical Probability. The 5 rows are comprised of varying statistical information corresponding to the column headers listed above. The populations detailed in the first column, reading from top to bottom are Plains Archaic, African, Windover, SE U.S. Archaic, Bird Island Archaic.

The significance of the Table 13 is to document the statistical probability of group membership for Kennewick Man in modern and archaic populations. For a more detailed and contextualized discussion of Table 13 and the osteological assessment of the Kennewick Man skeleton refer back to the text.
