Abstract

Red Light Ladies, as a part of the business community in historical American mining towns, are identifiable in the archaeological and historical record. The settlement pattern of prostitutes as well as type of prostitution was directly influenced by the economic, social and political structure of local communities. Thus, analysis of data relating to prostitution can provide substantial information about many poorly documented mining settlements. The author is with the New Zealand Department of Conservation, Hamilton.
