Summary

This archeological overview and assessment for Wilson's Creek national Battlefield describes the multiple episodes of archeological investigation that have occurred in the park since the 1960s. The report discusses the 50 recorded archeological sites in the park and their relation to the over 8,000 years of documented human use and occupation of the park lands. The assessment discusses what is known about the park's archeological resources, but makes particular note that the main archeological resource of the park, the physical evidence of the 1861 Battle of Wilson's Creek, is not fully recorded, future archeological investigations, including a parkwide inventory of the prehistoric resources and a metal-detecting inventory of the battlefield of Wilson's Creek.
