Chinese Roots:Sketches of Life in Washington Township

Archaeology at Stanford's Arboretum Chinese Houses

Learn what an excavation at Stanford University has revealed about the lives of early Chinese immigrants and their relationships with other Bay Area communities and with China. Presenter Christopher B. Lowman is a graduate student at UCB who works on archeological excavations and museum research.

This lecture is part of a series in conjunction with a special exhibit at the Fremont Main Library prepared by Janet Barton and other members of the "Chinese History Project" or the Washington Township Museum of Local History. The Chinese History Project focuses on the history of the early Chinese from the museum's archives and other partner organizations including the Roeding Archives of the California Nursery Company and the Shinn archives managed by the Mission Peak Heritage Foundation.
