About this event
What really happened at the iconic Battle of the Little Bighorn? Hear from Dr. Douglas Scott as he discusses the results of the Midwest Archeological Center's investigation of the battlefield. Archeological findings demonstrate that Native Americans outnumbered, outgunned, and outfought the U.S. Seventh Cavalry on June 25, 1876. Out of the Little Bighorn Battle investigations, a new field known as conflict archeology arose. Scott will share the Midwest Archeological Center's important role in the development of this new discipline. This public talk is part of a speaker series celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Center. Visitors to the Denney Federal Building must have a valid photo ID and pass through a security screening area. Limited visitor parking is available on the ground floor of the Federal parking garage at the corner of N Street and Centennial Mall.
