This document is a manuscript prepared by the Smithsonian Institution for a special article in the Quarterly Progress Report, published by the Missouri Basin Field Committee. Giving an overview of the mission and goals of the Missouri Basin Project through the Inter-Agency Archeological Salvage Program, this article addresses the vital importance of historic site recovery and excavation. These sites produce evidence of historic contact between settlers, explorers and native groups unrecorded in written record and are currently threatened by reservoir and water relocation projects.
