    An interesting look at the archaeology and flow of the final stages of the battle of the Little Bighorn By necessity it s dry and academic I look forward to reading the followup by Douglas Scott that continues the field study and perhaps fleshes outof the vignettes The vignettes presented in this book s conclusion are rather poignant, focusing as they do on the remains of two men found far from any of their comrades It postulates their last moments from the handfuls of bone fragments, An interesting look at the archaeology and flow of the final stages of the battle of the Little Bighorn By necessity it s dry and academic I look forward to reading the followup by Douglas Scott that continues the field study and perhaps fleshes outof the vignettes The vignettes presented in this book s conclusion are rather poignant, focusing as they do on the remains of two men found far from any of their comrades It postulates their last moments from the handfuls of bone fragments, bullets, and shells left scattered across the Montana prairie.Recommended for those interested in the battle, but probably too dry for most other readers
