To explore the sweep of human history at Fort Vancouver is to grasp some of the essentials of the North American experience. The fort has been part of the major historical trends of the Pacific Northwest for over 150 years, from the effects of colonialism native peoples to the role of the U.S. Army. Native Americans, traders, homesteaders, and soldiers lived and worked at the fort, their lives interwoven and their stories imbedded in the objects they left behind. Exploring Fort Vancouver uses some of the most intriguing objects from the fort's extensive archaeological and archival collections to tell the history of technology, material culture, globalization, health and diet, and the National Park Service at this significant place.

MEDIA REVIEWS

In this beautifully illustrated volume, chief Fort Vancouver archaeologist Doug Wilson and curator Theresa Langford assemble the story of the fort - the archaeology of the past 65 years. . . . It tells the story of the settlement of the American West.

-- Mark Michel * American Archaeology *

Detailed descriptions accompany each photograph, providing historical context. . . . To help explain the significance of Fort Vancouver and its artifacts as they relate to local, national, and world history, [are] essays on archaeology, technology, and medicine. It all makes for a very interesting read.

-- Jan Johnston * The Columbian *
