Archeological Salvage in the Missouri Basin
Author(s): Warren W. Caldwell
This document is a public statement and explanation for the archaeology conducted in the Missouri Basin during the 1950s. The document states: Despite the manifold accomplishments of archeology in the Missouri Basin, the whys, the origin and the complexities of aboriginal life are still obscure. Much remains to be done. The rising waters threaten far more than is now in hand. The Missouri Basin archeologist looks upon the situation as a race, and a critical one. It is not a race to secure artifacts for display, but rather to salvage a minimal segment of man’s past history in the Missouri Basin— to document a body of past experience carrying profound implications for present and future.
This document contains a general overview of archaeology and history of the Missouri Basin, accompanied by black and white photographs.
