Casselden Place Archaeological Excavations

» Downloads & Basic Metadata

Summary

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 later, dense domestic occupation by a mix of tenants from Irish, Jewish, Chinese and Syrian backgrounds. A detailed Research Archive Report (RAR) was completed in 2004.
