Description

Carling I. Malouf, former professor of archaeology at the University of Montana-Missoula, discusses his role in the research and preservation of Fort Owen as an archaeological site. He explains how archaeologists and historians were able to trace the outlines of the fort by studying journals, hand-drawn maps, paintings, and oral histories of individuals who had formerly lived on site. Malouf also describes the layout of the fort’s foundations, some of the small finds discovered, and the ways that the modern historical site has been able to maintain the integrity of the former structures. He explains how the site became an important teaching tool for University of Montana archaeology and history students to use in hands-on studies. Malouf concludes by mentioning difficulties accessing funds to maintain a museum for onsite artifact display.
