(p.156) 6 Archaeological Evidence from Lion Island
An Archaeology of Asian Transnationalism

Douglas E. Ross

University Press of Florida

This chapter presents archaeological data from the Chinese bunkhouse on Lion Island associated with the Ewen Cannery. It highlights categories of artifacts most relevant to issues of transnational consumption and diasporic identification. This original data is accompanied by summaries of relevant data from previous historical archaeological studies of the Chinese diaspora to lend support to the larger arguments and to highlight the variability and complexity of the Asian migrant experience. Accumulated data indicate retention of homeland practices in some areas, adoption of local goods and habits in others, and, in several instances, unique combinations of both.

Keywords:   historical archaeology, Chinese diaspora, Ewen Cannery, Lion Island
