          Skulls with moderately protrusive teeth, extending beyond the chin (mesognathous) and a rounded (mesocephalic) cranium match types of colonists who entered Spain and Portugal at the close of the Neolithicperiod.  They may also have entered North America by way of the Bering Strait, using water-borne transportation. People with skulls like this (from Holliston Mills, Tennessee) might have constituted the Algonquian population at the time when Woden-lithi and his compatriots visited Canada (Fell 1982).
