Market Street Chinatown Archaeological Project (San Jose California) Public Presentation of Laboratory Methodology

This web site reports research results generated during a laboratory methodology course taught at Stanford University. The web site allows the visitor to be a "virtual participant" as the class members catalogue, analyze, and curate an assemblage of artifacts excavated in 1985. Regular updates posted to the web site share the progress of the work, and feedback comments and/or questions are encouraged at a "discussion" link. Individual student research projects are posted for viewing. A ‘featured weekly artifact’ is show-cased.
