Are you looking to reclaim a lost fort? You may want to look at Reclaim fortress mode.

Reclaim is the opposite of forbid. Allows an item to be used by your Dwarves that has been forbidden, whether it's going to be hauled or used in construction. It's needed to use items found when you reclaim a fortress or build a fort near an existing settlement, as all items are auto-forbid. It is also used for recovering other automatically forbidden items, such as those dropped by dead goblins. To reclaim, press k to view the item and f to toggle forbid status. You may also use the reclaim designation to reclaim simultaneously all of the items dumped by using d then b then c and tracing the designation over top of the objects.
