Part I Historical archaeology Chapter 2 The fabric and structure of Australian mining settlements Peter Bell ABSTRACT There seem to be distinctive elements identifiable in the plans of towns and the forms of buildings that served the mining industry throughout the world in the nineteenth century.

But there are no descriptions of the Chinese in Victoria building culturally distinctive houses; only temples and clubhouses were built in the Chinese architectural tradition. However, this was to change in later decades. In the 1870s, a second phase of Chinese immigrants arrived on the mining fields of northern Australia, numerous and well organized. On the sparsely settled tropical goldfields they quickly came to dominate the population: at the 1876 census, the Palmer goldfield was 73% Chinese, and in the Northern Territory, the entire population was over 50% Chinese from 1879 to 1910 (Jones 1990:131).
