ARC3HAA Essay: Feng Shui in the Ideational and Conceptual Landscape Bright Chinese Camp

by Caroline Seawright
Year 3 Essay for Historical Archaeology in Australia at LaTrobe University, December 2013.

 

Synopsis:
The remains of an 1859 Chinese camp site have been identified at Bright in north-east Victoria (Bannear 1997; Kaufman & Swift 1997, p. 2). The layout of the archaeological and historic remains of this Chinese site in Victoria suggests that the social practice of feng shui was implemented, as found elsewhere in Australia (Stankowski 2000, p. 3; Smith 2006, p. i). The extent to which the site conforms to the principles of feng shui will also be explored, focusing on culturally conceived, conceptualised and ideational landscape use.
