Ah Toy's Garden: A Chinese Market-Garden on the Palmer River Goldfield, North Queensland (1984)
The Chinese on the Palmer River goldfield of North Queensland from the 1870s onwards were involved in market gardening as well as mining. This paper examines in detail the history and archaeology of one such garden occupied by Chinese from 1883 until 1934. The results of an archaeological survey of the garden area, including habitation sites, graves and an irrigation system, and excavation of the principal Chinese house-site and several rubbish dumps, are analysed in the context of documentary...
An Archaeology of Institutional Confinement: the Hyde Park Barracks 1848-1886
This ARC Linkage project was conducted between 2008 and 2011 to extend the analysis of the extraordinary assemblage recovered from the Hyde Park Barracks building between 1980 and 1981. It followed the Exploring the Archaeology of the Modern City Project (2001-2004). The primary purpose of both projects was to undertake a rigorous analysis of the rich archaeological and historical archive related to the post-convict era of the Hyde Park Barracks, particularly the above-ground sub-floor deposits...
An Archaeology of Institutional Confinement: The Hyde Park Barracks, 1848–1886 (2013)
The archaeological assemblage from the Hyde Park Barracks is one of the largest, most comprehensive and best preserved collections of artefacts from any 19th-century institution in the world.Concealed for up to 160 years in the cavities between floorboards and ceilings, the assemblage is a unique archaeological record of institutional confinement, especially of women. The underfloor assemblage dates to the period 1848-1886, during which a female Immigration Depot and a Government Assylum for...

Casselden Place Archaeological Excavations
The Casselden Place Archaeological Excavations (50 Lonsdale Street) were conduced in two stages in May-July and November-December 2002 by Godden Mackay Logan, Austral Archaeology and the Archaeology Program at La Trobe University. The site is located in the eastern end of Melbourne CBD in the infamous 'Little Lon' precinct—an area that acquired a reputation in the 19th and early-20th centuries for squalor and vice. The site revealed evidence of Melbourne's earliest phases of settlement and...

Destitute women and smoking at the Hyde Park Barracks, Sydney, Australia (2011)
The Hyde Park Barracks in Sydney, Australia, was established in 1819 to accommodate male convicts, but in later years the building served as a depot for immigrant women (1848-86) and as an asylum for destitute women (1862-86). The occupation of the latter group in particular resulted in the loss of large numbers of clay tobacco pipes under the floorboards. The quantity and distribution of the pipes is used here to examine smoking behavior among the destitute female inmates, and to assess their...

Exploring the Archaeology of the Modern City project
The ‘Exploring the Archaeology of the Modern City’ project (EAMC) was established in 2001 by Professor Tim Murray of the Archaeology Program of La Trobe University and Industry Partners, to analyse and interpret the large assemblages excavated from historical archaeological sites which are held in storehouses across Sydney. Funding for the project was provided by the Australian Research Council through its Linkage Scheme. The project gave to the analysis of ten discreet household assemblages...
Exploring the Archaeology of the Modern City: Issues of Scale, Integration and Complexity (2005)
Historical archaeologists have advocated the need to explore the archaeology of the modern city using several different scales or frames of reference—the household and the district being the most common. In this paper, we discuss the value of comparisons at larger scales, for example between cities or countries, as a basis for understanding archaeology of the modern western city. We argue that patterns of similarity and dissimilarity detected at these larger scales can (and should) become part...

A Historical Archaeology of the Commonwealth Block 1850-1950
Melbourne’s Commonwealth Block was a central city neighbourhood that existed for a century (from roughly 1850 to 1950) as a place of working-class residence and employment. Intermeshed with these working-class networks was a complicated landscape of small-scale businesses, and a cluster of large factories. This project is an Australian Research Council-funded Linkage project undertaken by La Trobe University and Museum Victoria to consolidate, amalgamate and enhance the available site and...
