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...

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...
First Government House datasets (2005)
Complete suite of artefact datasets from the First Government House site, as upgraded for the Exploring the Archaeology of the Modern City project. It combines two datasets created for the main series of excavations from 1983 and 1987, and excavations in Young Street and Raphael Place in 1991. The data was originally created by teams working for Anne Bickford and Wendy Thorp.
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...
Keeping up with the McNamaras: A Historical Archaeological Study of the Cumberland and Gloucester Streets site, The Rocks, Sydney (2005)

Suburban archaeology: approaching an archaeology of the middle class in 19th century Melbourne
This multi-disciplinary Australian Research Council-funded project is jointly held by La Trobe University, University of Melbourne and Deakin University. It engages archaeologists, historians and museologists in an investigation that places material culture at the centre of understandings of suburban middle-class life in Australian cities. The project responds to recent work on consumption, identity, and class formation about the need to investigate the material conditions of the urban middle...
Understanding the archaeology of the modern city (2003)
This chapter reports some of the thinking behind the work that has been done in Melbourne with the ‘Little Lon’ Project begun by Alan Mayne and Tim Murray in 1996, the Sydney-focused Archaeology of the Modern City project begun in 2001, the Casselden Place project undertaken by a consortium of Godden Mackay Logan Pty Ltd (GML), Austral Archaeology Pty Ltd and La Trobe University during 2002, and forthcoming work in London, we will seek to more clearly establish the value of this broader...
Viewbank Artefact dataset (2008)
Viewbank Homestead (PhD Research)
PhD research undertaken on the material culture of the Martins, a wealthy middle-class family in nineteenth-century Melbourne. The artefact assemblage used for this research was recovered by Heritage Victoria between 1996 and 1999 from the site of Viewbank homestead, in Heidelberg, Melbourne. Viewbank was home to Dr Robert and Mrs Lucy Martin and their six children from 1844 to 1874. In analysing the assemblage, this PhD is particularly concerned with the close relationship between material...
