NZAA Council is delighted to announce that this year’s recipient of the Walton Fund is Ella Ussher. Ella’s project is a survey in Whakapirau in the Upper Kaipara, to fill the gaps in the archaeological record and map the extensive storage pit and steep slope trenching agricultural complexes that were constructed in this region. Ella will carry out this work with Katarina Tautuhi (Kaitiaki-Waihaua Marae and Environs Te Uri o Hau- Pou Kaitiaki), and is part of a larger project to use remote sensing, oral histories, and historical research to record pre-European Māori occupation of the Upper Kaipara between the Tinopai and Whakapirau peninsulas.
