Welcome to the Archaeology Network of the Chinese Railroad Worker History Project, a transnational collaborative research endeavor based out of Stanford University. The Archaeology Network of the Chinese Railroad Worker History Project was created at the request of the Project organizers, Gordon H. Chang, Shelley Fisher Fishkin, and Hilton Obenzinger, to connect the Project with the large community of archaeologists who have been researching Chinese railroad workers and who are involved in managing the sites, collections, archives, and other materials that evidence that history. Dr. Barbara L. Voss, Associate Professor of Anthropology, is coordinating the network as a service to the Project. Archaeological evidence and research will play a key role in reconstructing the lives and histories of those who built and maintained the railroads.
If you are an archaeologist who would like to be a part of the Archaeology Network, please email Professor Barbara Voss at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We highlight the following archeology publications of special interest —
A special thematic issue of the journal, Historical Archaeology (49), which was developed through a Project-sponsored workshop in October 2013. Click here for more information.
