    Chinese railroad worker’s house excavated in a ghost town, Utah

    Archaeologists conducting archaeological excavations in ghost towns, Utah, have made unusual discoveries. A house owned by a 19th century Chinese worker on the transcontinental railroad.

    This house, now just a layer of floorboards littered with Chinese coins, stone tools and other crafts, is the first fully excavated Chinese house on the transcontinental railroad. More than 11,000 immigrants from China helped build a railroad linking the Eastern Iowa Line to San Francisco Bay. However, these workers are often excluded from historical documents from the late 1800s, said Christopher Merritt of the State Historic Preservation Office of the Utah Department of History. For example, the existence of Chinatown was not on any map of the terrace.
