Join an array of archaeologists and heritage storytellers for a selection of short talks that bring to life the stories of places and landscapes in Ōtautahi Christchurch and beyond. Archaeology is, at it's most simple, a way of understanding the lives of past peoples through the traces they leave behind, in and on the land. As part of New Zealand Archaeology Week 2021, this evening of archaeological storytelling showcases the different ways that the past can be reimagined, revisited and made real through the stories of places that were once inhabited or occupied by those who have passed before us.
PLEASE NOTE: Registrations are required in case of any changes in Covid-19 alert levels and for contact tracing requirements. Should the alert level change from Level 1 to Level 2, attendance will be limited to the first 100 registrations.
