Abstract
This site was investigated as part of a wide-ranging programme of research at Port Arthur. Its importance lies in the fact that it is the only part of Port Arthur continuously occupied during its entire convict period and by such large groups of people. Even so documentation about it is fairly minimal; the plans are largely inconsistent and incomplete and there appear to be more proposed than actual plans in existence. If one was testing the archaeological potential of a site in Port Arthur, it seemed that this would be the best area to choose.
