Kia ora Koutou
New Zealand Archaeology Week is over for another year.  This year we had just on 60 events around the country of a wide variety including walks, talks, library and museum displays, children’s events and excavations.  We had more events which were more spread out over the country than 2017.
I would like to thank everyone who participated in New Zealand Archaeology Week 2018. Without your participation and support the event would not be possible.
Please contact me at archaeologyweek@nzarchaeology.org  if you would like to provide any feedback (good or bad) about New Zealand Archaeology Week 2018 or have interest in participating in New Zealand Archaeology Week 2019.
Again, thank you very much
