From the back cover:

David Starbuck has been excavating British military sites in Fort Edward and Lake George, New York for two decades. In 1996, on the east bank of the Hudson River, Starbuck’s team discovered the remarkable remains of a sutlers’ (or merchants’) house, which had supplied goods to the British armies throughout the late 1750s. Excavating the Sutlers’ House provides a fascinating overview of artifacts from the French and Indian War to the American Revolution.”
