Notionally, Gallop House, Dalkeith, WA is a heritage-listed colonial house built c. 1873 on the banks of Derbarl Yerrigan (Swan River). However, the house is just one extant part of a wider, multi-ethnic colonial landscape. Settled by Adam Armstrong in 1831 CE, the property has had multiple owners, tenants and associates stakeholders over its 185-year history. Evidence and details of this changing land tenure were brought to light by the 2015 UWA Archaeology Field School. This evidence has led to two current postgraduate projects – on a hitherto undocumented Asian market garden another on complex Aboriginal-Asian-European interactions witnessed by key artefacts. The field school, the current research, and the partnership with the National Trust and City of Nedlands in better understanding the house and property are here reported on.
