e Gold (2006)

The eGold website was produced under the direction of Andrew May, project managed by Keir Reeves, with research coordination from Cate O’Neill . The site was developed by the University of Melbourne’s eScholarship Research Centre (Australian Science and Technology Heritage Centre). The website is a resource for those interested in family or local history, technology or material culture, and is tailored to the needs of students, scholars, enthusiasts, visitors and the general public. Telling the story of gold through images, stories and multimedia interactives, it connects individual stories to the wider historical themes of global gold rushes, global migration flows, building the Australian nation and democratic change during the gold rushes. Financial support for the project was provided through an Australian Government Gift to the Nation to celebrate National Heritage listing of the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park and the Eureka Stockade Gardens.
