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 comparative agenda in urban archaeology.
