Summary "Between 1990 and 1992, Susan Lawrence and a group of archaeologists mapped the remains of the Dolly's Creek settlement on the Moorabool and excavated four houses. Like the miners, they were drawn to the site by the desire to dig for treasure. In Dolly's Creek, Susan Lawrence tells the story both of their archaeological research and of the community they uncovered."--BOOK JACKET
