STILLWATER, N.Y. (AP) - A new book has been written on the archaeology conducted over the years at the site of the Revolutionary War’s Battles of Saratoga.

“The Saratoga Campaign: Uncovering an Embattled Landscape” was released on Tuesday. It was edited by National Park Service archaeologist Bill Griswold and Donald Linebaugh of the University of Maryland.

The book presents new insights about the two battles fought at Saratoga in September and October 1777, ending in an American victory. Griswold and Linebaugh focus on battlefield archaeology at Saratoga and the contributions of archaeologists who have conducted excavations in key areas of the battleground, located in the town of Stillwater.

Griswold and Linebaugh will discuss their book at the battlefield’s visitors’ center on June 4.
