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. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary Roelofs.

They tell me I'm cold and calculating. They tell me I'm not a team player. I say this without pride or pleasure. It is a simple fact. I am the best Warrior in the Immortal Societies. When a team of scientists unearth scriptures older than the Dead Sea Scrolls in a cave in Egypt, a mystery lost to the tides of time is uncovered. Heading the expedition is Dimitri Reznak, the Head of the Crovir Immortal Culture & History Section. But the monumental discovery is spoiled by evidence of looting and half the priceless artifacts Reznak has sought for centuries have disappeared. Alexa King is a covert agent for the Crovir First Council. Cold, deadly, unrivaled on the battlefield, she is the perfect warrior. When her godfather Dimitri approaches her for a mission that could elucidate the enigma of her lost past, Alexa is drawn into the dangerous and shadowy world of secret religious societies along with Zachary Jackson, a gifted human and Harvard archaeology professor assigned to help her.
