Archaeology of Early Chinese and Japanese San José

Archaeologist excavating
ASC archaeologists conducted data recovery excavations from 14th to 23rd April 2009 in selected areas of Heinlenville and early Japantown. This work followed up on ASC’s March 2008 test excavations at the site. The excavation blog started during last year’s work allowed the community to follow our progress and view the excavation from the perspective of archaeologists, students, volunteers, and a local historian.

This year, the blog continued to inform the community on our activities, including excavation of the Ng Shing Gung Temple, the Chinese Theater, and portions of Japantown. Keep reading the blog this month to find out about what goes on after the excavation, as we continue our work back at the ASC laboratory. To read the blog, follow the link below.
