Presented by Eva Forster-Garbutt.
Time: Drinks & nibbles from 5.30, presentation from 6pm
Venue: Boardroom, Antrim House, 63 Boulcott St, Wellington
This talk will uncover the practice of buildings archaeology in New Zealand – a field of enquiry that has gained momentum within the profession over the last 15 years. With hundreds of buildings having been investigated and recorded by archaeologists, it is time to step back and consider what we are doing, how we are doing it, why, and what the future might hold.
WAG (Wellington Archaeology Group), Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga (HNZ) and NZ Archaeological Assoc (NZAA) are jointly hosting this session. Eva will present to us, and then is seeking discussion and feedback to shape her research questions for her Churchill Fellowship.
Drinks & nibbles will be provided by NZAA. Anyone & everyone is welcome.
RSVP by Sunday 14th of April to Mary at email@example.com
Eva Forster-Garbutt, a former archaeologist with New Zealand Heritage Properties (Dunedin) and now working as a senior heritage advisor with the Wellington City Council, has had a fascination with old buildings throughout her study and working life. Her foray into the practice of buildings archaeology echoes that of many archaeologists working in New Zealand; unleashed on a pre-1900 building armed with the Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Guide ‘The Investigation and Recording of Buildings and Standing Structures’, collegial support, a camera, measuring tape, hammer, crowbar and a copy of the Jeremy Salmond book ‘Old New Zealand Houses’. In 2019 Eva will be going to the UK as part of a Winston Churchill Memorial Fellowship to visit academics, buildings archaeologists and other professional to learn some tricks of the trade, to help improve the investigation and recording of heritage buildings in Aotearoa.
