Cost, quality and value in historical archaeology
This doctoral research program explored three key concepts in nineteenth-century consumerism - cost, quality and value - and the role they play in examining the archaeological material culture of the modern world. It encompassed two primary strands of inquiry: one, a consumption-theory driven study of trade catalogues to analyse the cost and promotion of 19th-century tablewares; and two, a close study of production flaws observed in archaeological sherds. These culminated in a consideration of...

Excavations at Arltunga (1983)
The White Range settlement on the Arltunga Goldfield must have been as remote a spot as any group of miners could have found in Australia in 1903, the high point of its history. Although supplies arrived only at two or three month intervals, and had to be carried from far-off Oodnadatta by camel and horse-teams, it was nevertheless at White Range that John Wilson set up his store and that Patrick O'Neil (and his wife) apparently set up his billiard table! In the following paper Kate Holmes, of...

The life and death of a flourmill: McCrossin's Mill, Uralla (1983)

People in the landscape: A Biography of two villages (1984)

The...
