I assume it's safe to say repatriation is considered out of bounds regarding pre-Clovis theories so that seems to be out of the question at AWS so that isn't a issue unless one regards selling human skulls on ebay is not relevant either... but any way.
I thought about visiting Stan's site a few times, but never had until I ran across it about two months ago due to an ad or some other association at inventorSpot while seaching for the right kind of soil sample kit i was looking for I didn't have much luck with there.
After my libray was destroyed in July of 2010 I come across some unheard of names of two brothers that appears to be a Mammoth series in the U.K. relesed in 2000 right before the U.S. public library system was overhaled and less user friendly.
At any rate, In the Mammoth Ency. of the UNSOLVED, one of the Wilson brothers, I assume neither is not a memember of the PGRA (Great Pyramid of Giza Research Association) suggests overall as a whole from what I recall... that the Greek portalin messurement on sea was more accurate than on land... not only the somewhat modern tale of Rennes-Le-Chateau (regarding the "English Connection" or accurate land messurement: kilometer vs Mile) but also for the theory the base of the pyrmid some say the arcitect was Job, is the same as the circumference of the earth as "geodetic" as in works of Berriman's Histical Metrology which seems to be a scientific commonality before the advent of more popular radio cabon dating method.
