Hi Swanz -

I improved the video and reposted it, so I did not see your observation at its earlier You tube site.

I will be happy to discuss it with you, when I see it.

Informational videos are much more difficult to create than I ever realized. I learned this the hard way while trying to do a very short one for the town historical society. For inspiration I watched over and over a true master, professor Richard Holmes. His speaking cadence, enthusiasm for the subject truly make these mesmerizing videos. On the technical side they were fairly simple by today's standards, but completely adequate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdg0sZS ... IuSaqiZulf

Hi Ernie -

I have greatly improved the first part of the video:

Yes, good narration is essential.
It's mainly been learning new software.

"It's mainly been learning new software." .. I feel your pain E.P. It does appear to have paid off though !

A new improved version:

By the way, Jeff Wilson has been working through Putnam's excavation materials,
and located a plate of the skeleton of the principal burial in the large mound.
It measured 8.9 feet from the top of its head to its ankles.

Whatever you want to take out for disarticulation, he was a very tall fellow when he was alive.

The question now is whether he was specially bred for C mt DNA, as Dragoo theorized, or whether he was an X mt DNA subgroup.
My on guess is the later.
