Abstract

Excavations at the Dutch East India Company post of Paradise have revealed a well-dated, stratified sequence of architectural change at a single location. The main house and outbuildings were substantially rebuilt or altered during the site's occupation in the eighteenth century. Combined evidence from excavated artefacts and the household inventory, written after the death of Master Woodcutter Salomon Bosch at Paradise in 1768, provided a fruitful record of domestic material culture. Comparison between the faunal remains from the postholder's house and an outbuilding occupied by Company soldiers or labourers indicated status differentiation within the site.
