The Archaeology of House and Home in Jacksonville, Oregon’s, Chinese Quarter

(p.163) 7 Burned
Chinese Diaspora Archaeology in North America

Chelsea Rose

University Press of Florida

Excavations at the Jacksonville Chinese Quarter, one of the earliest Chinese communities in the Pacific Northwest, uncovered the in situ remnants of a Chinese-occupied dwelling that burned in the fall of 1888. The large artifact, faunal, and botanical assemblage, when paired with forensic fire science, identified details about the spatial layout and occupation of the building at the time it burned. In addition to the archaeological recovery of possessions and structural remains, the burned house feature provides insight into the placemaking that has occurred at the site, allowing us to consider the material culture as expressions of the choices, opportunities, and human experience of the residents at the time of the fire.
