The NZAA Council is pleased to announce the successful applicant for a grant from the Walton Fund for 2019. Council would also like to thank all the applicants for the high quality of their applications, and to wish them all the best with their projects.
Brooke Tucker will carry out survey work on Codfish Island/ Whenua Hou, recording the condition of previously recorded archaeological sites, attempt to locate a ‘lost’ site in Penguin Bay and look for a potential site in Roderiques Bay. The archaeological record for Codfish Island/Whenua Hou exemplifies several of the fascinating historical issues associated with the development of the Site Recording Scheme and the digital transfer to the ArchSite platform, including ‘missing’ ArchSite numbers, silent files, incomplete records, and ‘lost’ files.
