To celebrate NZ Archaeology Week, and as part of Tuku23 Nelson Provincial Museum are delighted to be hosting Otago University PhD candidate Lisa Mckendry.
Lisa is a weaver and archaeologist who is completing her doctorial research on archaeological Māori textile fragments from Te Ana o Hineraki (Moa Bone Point), Moncks Cave and Katawahu (Le Bons Bay).
Archaeological textiles is the broad term covering all textile artefacts made from plant materials. Diverse techniques (twisting, plaiting, twining, knotting) were used to manufacture a range of taonga such as cordage, nets, clothing, baskets, and mats.
