Product description


'This work is important as it provides the first investigation of the
Chinese fishing industry in Australia. Future historical archaeologists
can build on Bowen's work in other countries where the Chinese engaged
in the fishing during the nineteenth century.'

-- Linda Bentz ― Archaeology in Oceania

'This work was originally a PhD thesis and is a fine example of the need for
more monographs in all disciplines, particularly Australian history. Reading
Archaeology can only benefit historians. Archaeologists model evidence
interpretation in markedly creative and distinctive ways, their conclusions are
careful and measured and they must elaborate their theoretical base clearly ... a must for all historians of the late nineteenth century.'

-- Paula Jane Byrne ― Journal of Australian Colonial History --This text refers to the paperback edition.
