Archaeological Insights into The Custer Battle. An Assessment of the 1984 Field Season.
Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1987. Later printing. A Near Fine copy in glossy, illustrated paperback binding. Folding map present in rear pocket. Describing archaeological investigations during the first year (1984) of a two-year survey, this book offers a detailed analysis of the physical evidence remaining after the battle. Precise information regarding the locations of artifacts and painstaking analyses of the artifacts themselves have uncovered much information about the guns used in the battle by the victorious Indian warriors. Not only have the types of guns been identified, but through the use of archaeological and criminal-investigative techniques the actual numbers of firearms can now be estimated. This analysis of the battlefield shows that the two forces left artifacts in what can be defined as "combatant patterns." Item #28287
