Publisher's Summary

Almost as soon as the last shot was fired in the Battle of the Little Bighorn, the battlefield became an archaeological site. For many years afterward, as fascination with the famed 1876 fight intensified, visitors to the area scavenged the many relics left behind. It took decades, however, before researchers began to tease information from the battle's debris - and the new field of battlefield archaeology began to emerge. In Uncovering History, renowned archaeologist Douglas D. Scott offers a comprehensive account of investigations at the Little Bighorn, from the earliest collecting efforts to early-twentieth-century findings.

Scott describes how detailed analysis of specific detritus at the Little Bighorn - such as cartridge cases, fragments of camping equipment and clothing, and skeletal remains - have allowed researchers to reconstruct and reinterpret the history of the conflict.

Scott expands our understanding of the battle, its protagonists, and the enduring legacy of the battlefield as a national memorial.
