"The Clear Grit of the Old District": Fire Company-Related Artifacts from Fishtown, Philadelphia (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Thomas Kutys.

Recent archaeological excavations conducted for PennDOT under Interstate 95 in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia have produced a number of artifacts related to the volunteer fire companies that once existed in the neighborhood. Between 1736 and 1857, over 150 volunteer companies came into existence across the city, and two of those were once situated within the current project area. With the creation of the paid Philadelphia Fire Department in 1871, the era of the volunteer companies passed...

"Doubled with wood in every direction": The Hull Structure and Outfitting of a Royal Navy Ship of Polar Exploration (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ryan Harris. Jonathan Moore.

The largely intact wreck of HMS Investigator provides a unique opportunity to study the remains of a 19th-century Royal Navy ship of polar exploration. Purchased into the Navy in 1848 while still building on the stocks as a merchant vessel, Investigator was comprehensively modified for Arctic Service at Blackwall under the supervision of William Rice, Master Shipwright at Woolwich Dockyard. These modifications focussed mainly on reinforcing the hull to better withstand the destructive forces...


"Entering this bay was the fatal error of our voyage": The Abandonment, Loss, and Discovery of HMS Investigator in Mercy Bay, Canada (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ryan Harris.

Penetrating into the Western Arctic in 1850, HMS Investigator and its crew enjoyed initial success -- the charting of Prince of Wales Strait heralded at the time as the long-awaited discovery of the elusive Northwest Passage. A year later, however, the fortunes of the expedition would take a downward turn when Investigator was navigated into the confines of Mercy Bay and the regrettable decision was made to overwinter. The arrival of freeze-up would seal the fate of the ship, as it would remain...


Exploring Infatigable (1855): First insights from Archaeology into the mid-Nineteenth Century Chilean Navy (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Diego Carabias. Renato Simonetti. Carla Morales.

Infatigable was a Chilean Navy sailing transport vessel, lost in the harbour of Valparaiso (32° S) in 1855 as a consequence of an accidental explosion and subsequent fire. Positively identified in 2005, the wrecksite designated site S3 PV has been archaeologically investigated comprehensively during the last decade. The underwater survey and excavations conducted recorded the structural remains of the hull and produced a numerous and varied artefact assemblage to be analyzed. The material...


Finding HMS Erebus: The Role of Terrestrial Archaeological Investigations (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Douglas R. Stenton. Robert W. Park.

In 2008, the Government of Nunavut, in collaboration with Parks Canada and other partners, initiated a coordinated and systematic marine – terrestrial strategy in the search for John Franklin’s lost ships HMS Erebus and HMS Terror. This approach yielded new information about key Franklin expedition sites on King William Island and on Adelaide Peninsula, and in September 2014, led to the discovery of HMS Erebus. This paper summarizes the history of land-based archaeological studies of the 1845...


Life in the Ruins: Logging and Squatting at a 19th Century Village in Southwest Michigan (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Aaron Howe. Jan Brashler.

In this paper we examine archaeological data from Blendon Landing, a village centered on logging in Southwest Michigan during the mid-nineteenth century. When the logging ceased, most left. However archaeological and historical analysis suggests that a period of squatting occurred following Blendon Landing’s "abandonment". Squatting, as a ‘mode of existence’ outside the primary relations of capitalism, is often neglected in historical and archaeological research. Life, however, does not end with...


Mid-19th-Century Irish-American Foodways in New York City: Evidence from the Five Points Site in Lower Manhattan (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Pam J Crabtree.

The Five Points Site was part of a multi-ethnic, working class neighbourhood located in lower Manhattan; the site was excavated by John Milner Associates in the 1990s. Claudia Milne and I identified and analysed the faunal remains from features associated with first generation Italian-Americans, Central European Jewish-Americans, and Irish-Americas. This presentation will focus on the faunal remains from the Irish-American contexts which date to the 1850s. Analyses based on species and body...

"The Rules of Good Breeding Must be Punctiliously Observed": Constructing Space at Mid-Nineteenth Century Fort Vancouver, Washington (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Elizabeth A. Horton.

The U.S. Army’s Fort Vancouver in southwest Washington was headquarters for Pacific Northwest military exploration and campaigns in the mid-19th century. Between 1849 and the mid-1880s, members of the military community operated within a rigid social climate with firm cultural expectations and rules of behavior that were explicitly codified and articulated within the larger Victorian societal culture of gentility. Drawing upon datasets derived from the archaeological record and documentary...


Shanties on the Mountainside: A Look at Labor on the Blue Ridge Railroad (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only John M Hyche.

From 1850 to 1860, the Blue Ridge Mountains were home to roughly 1,900 Irish laborers as they worked on the construction of the Virginia Central Railroad. Upon its completion, the railroad  stretched from Norfolk, Virginia, to the Ohio River. Along the Blue Ridge Mountains, several cuts and tunnels were constructed by the Irish immigrants including the 4,263ft Blue Ridge Tunnel. In 2011, a local non-profit organization, focused on pinpointing the remains of Irish shantytown homes, contacted the...


Ugly Duckling and Work Horse: A Mid-19th Century Lighter from San Francisco Bay’s Yerba Buena Cove and Its Scale Model (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only John P Schlagheck.

In 2013 WSA recovered a well preserved Gold Rush Era lighter from the original shore of Yerba Buena Cove. This boat, used to "lighten" the load of ships anchored off-shore, is providing new insight into the working craft of early maritime San Francisco. Found in strong association with the 19th-century ship breaking and salvage industry near the cove, the boat’s simple design and homely non-standard construction evoke images of the rugged Western frontier. Using in situ photographs and an...
