DOCUMENT Full-Text Ian R Jack. Kate Holmes. Ruth Kerr.

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...

Archaeological And Archival Investigations Of A Norwegian Farmstead In Bosque County, Texas (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Alexandra M Smith.

Bosque County, Texas, has a rich history as the most successful Norwegian settlement in the state, attracting immigrants throughout the latter half of the 19th century. Ole Finstad was no exception to this Texas fever; immigrating in 1871 at the age of 51, he acquired 160 acres in Bosque County, built a rock house, and spent his days farming and raising cattle. His descendants continued this tradition for the next 84 years, and the ruins of the original rock house still stand today. This paper...


The Archaeological Invisibility of the Urban Immigrant: Examples from 19th and early 20th Century Glasgow & Manchester (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Michael D Nevell.

The 19th century saw the rapid urban expansion of many industrial cities, through inward migration from the surrounding countryside and overseas, and also by natural population growth. Glasgow and Manchester offer excavated examples of large areas of workers' housing with immigrant populations. This paper will look at the archaeological evidence for immigration on these sites, exploring the variety of material culture available. It will review the lack of archaeological evidence for these...

Before The War: A Japanese Family in Downtown San Luis Obispo, California (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Scott Baxter.

In 2016 ESA excavated a ceramic- and bottle-filled privy associated with the Kurokawa family. During the first half of the 20th century, the Kurokawas lived in Dowtown San Luis Obispo where they also operated a vegetable store. During this time they retained strong ties with their homeland. In 1942 the family was forced to give up their home and livelyhood and move to a Japanese internment camp. Artifacts from this deposit give a glimpse into their daily life prior to their internment.

Burial and Remembrance: The Milwaukee County Poor Farm Cemetery (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Patricia B. Richards. Brooke L. Drew.

Fieldwork in 1992 and 1993 on the grounds of the Milwaukee County Regional Medical Center, Milwaukee Wisconsin, resulted in recovery of some 1600 individuals originally buried in the institutional or "poor farm" cemetery. This paper argues that the conflict inherent in a public policy intended to provide a decent burial while simultaneously discouraging utilization of the service can only be understood within a broader historical context. Milwaukee’s population increased from 20,000 in 1850 to...


‘Carmelo’s Cabinet’: The Material Culture of Collections in the Anthracite Region of Pennsylvania (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Judith P Joklik. Michael P Roller.

Personal collections of objects reflect individual orderings of the material world, particularly when they encompass the realms of work, domestic life, health, aesthetics and religion. As complete sets, they are like an idealized version of an archaeological assemblage: intact, curated, annotated, and often traceable to an individual life trajectory and historical period. Carmelo Fierro was an Italian immigrant who came to American in 1902, carrying with him a small cabinet packed with small...


Cedar Shakes, Red Clay Bricks, and the Great Fire: Walloon-Speaking Belgians on Wisconsin’s Door Peninsula (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only John D. Richards. Patricia B. Richards.

Encouraged by earlier emigrants as well as boosterism by steamship companies, some 60,000 Belgians immigrated to the United States before 1900. A particularly dense concentration of Walloon speakers settled the southern portion of Wisconsin’s Door Peninsula and by 1860 over 60% of this area was Belgian owned. Today, the area harbors the largest concentration of Belgian-American vernacular architecture in North America and is remarkable for the presence of well-preserved agrarian landscapes as...


Charity and Integration: the Archaeology of Jewish Soup Kitchens  (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Philip J Carstairs.

Soup kitchens emerged in nineteenth century Britain and America as part of the pattern of industrialisation and urban expansion, although the tradition of such charitable provision is a good deal more ancient.  Significant factors in the development of these charities were urban expansion and mass immigration from Eastern Europe and Ireland.   Almost all the buildings that accommodated such soup kitchens have disappeared, either having been demolished or been converted to other uses.  This paper...


The Children of the Ludlow Massacre: The Impact of Corporate Paternalism on Immigrant Children in Early 20th Century Colorado Coal Mining Communities. (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jamie J Devine.

Coal Miner’s lives in Southern Colorado were fraught with violence and hardships during the Coal Wars. The Colorado Fuel and Iron Company attempted to assimilate ethnically diverse immigrant employees into American society. One of these methods was to impart American values to the children living in company towns. Archaeological work was conducted at the coal mining company town of Berwind, and at the Ludlow Massacre Tent Colony site. Using archaeological evidence and the historical record this...


Community Networks at the Stanford Arboretum Chinese Workers’ Quarters (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Christopher Lowman.

The historical response and endurance of Chinese diaspora communities in California, living with legally reified racism, is a critical component of understanding the economic and social impacts of immigration restriction. Between 1876 and 1925, the Chinese employees at the Stanford Stock Farm and Stanford University impacted the development of agriculture and infrastructure through their labor and entrepreneurship as farm workers, in construction, as gardeners, and as domestic workers. Over that...


Culinary Worlds Colliding: Using Biography to Understand the Alimentary Experience of Migration and ‘Modernization’ in Gilded Age & Progressive Era Chicago  (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Megan E. Edwards. Rebecca S. Graff.

In 1893 Chicago hosted an event that brought the entire world– and it’s foods– together in the space of an ephemeral ‘white city’.  The World’s Columbian Exposition– America’s showcase for the possibilities of an increasingly globalized, modern world– was itself taking place in an uneasily globalizing and modernizing city. The aim here is to access something of the texture of one very intimate aspect of personal life in the midst of such transition– in the consumption of and reaction to food by...


Exploring Transatlantic Connections: Sustaining Irish Island Communities in Early 20th Century America (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Meagan K Conway. Ian Kuijt. Casey McNeill. Katherine E Shakour.

Immigration from Ireland in the early 20th century contributed to the decline of island population, leaving fragmented fishing villages, yet simultaneously created vibrant new Irish communities in the United States.  By tracking inhabitants of Inishark and Inishbofin, two small islands off the coast of Galway, to the eastern United States, this paper explores the movement of individuals, families, and communities through the 19 and 20th centuries.  This paper investigates the reconstruction of...

Fighting the Tigers: Chinese Mobility as Resistance During the Exclusion Era (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Linda Bentz. Todd J. Braje.

During the mid-nineteenth century, Chinese and many other immigrants flooded California’s shores in pursuit of economic opportunities. Over the next several decades, Chinese labor became threatening to national, Euro-American interests and federal and state governments passed a variety of taxes, ordinances, and legislation targeting Chinese communities. The most restrictive of these were the Chinese Exclusion and Geary acts, which barred immigration by Chinese laborers and severely limited their...

An Interdisciplinary Approach to Historical Analogy: Drawing Parallels Between Early 20th Century and Modern Immigrant Groups in Hazleton, Pennsylvania  (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Katherine Nyulassy.

In the town of Hazleton, PA, long-term residents exhibit a strong sense of American identity in reference to their ancestor’s immigration to the U.S. from Western, Southern and Eastern Europe in the mid-to-late nineteenth century. Though members of this descendant group seem to be well aware of the ethnic and racial discrimination their forefathers faced, their views on a recent influx of Latino immigrants that have established themselves in the area are often surprisingly discriminative. In...
