Archaeology of domestic life in early 20th century Britain

The aim of this blog is to publish data on early 20th century buildings, whilst this is still accessible. Much material of interest to the historian is being destroyed through 'home improvements' and DIY, and objects are increasingly being divorced from their context through dispersal after the death of their owners. By creating an easily accessible contextual record of material culture, it is hoped that those interested in this period of history may have a resource through which the details of domestic life might be studied.

If you have any artefacts of interest, or make discoveries during the process of your own investigations that you would like to share, please contact me!

South America - archaeology of the early 20th century

Some interesting finds (mostly C19, but some of the collections seem to include EC20) recorded by the Buenos Aires Centre for Urban Archaeology - includes some great photos of domestic material, some of which come from Britain (Google Translate works well enough to understand most of the text, for those who can't read Spanish). Well worth a visit...
