"[The author] offers a[n] ... account of investigations at the Little Bighorn, from the earliest collecting efforts to early-twentieth-century findings... [He] 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. In the process, he demonstrates how major advances in technology, such as metal detection and GPS, have expanded the capabilities of battlefield archaeologists to uncover new evidence and analyze it with greater accuracy"--Dust jacket.
