Great to hear. I remember the sound of that dredge there from the 1950s.

Also remembering the minister overturning the HPT in it declining permission to mine a set of herringbone tailings. 70's I think. The miner went ahead and found very little as I recall.

Not archaeology (yet). The pics in these stories remind one of 19th Century gold mining in Otago, Victoria and the West Coast. The focus here is on loss of land habitat, but the colour of the rivers suggests they are suffering as well.

Hocken Talk Series: 2021

 

Dr Matthew Schmidt: Dunedin's Changing Shoreline: A city built on reclamation

 

This talk will walk listeners through the changing shape of Dunedin City from a small town built on hills and swampy areas next to the harbour shore, to a city built on the extensive reclamation of the harbour. The story of Dunedin's' reclamation is the story of the rising wealth and prosperity of New Zealand's once richest city.

 

Dr Matthew Schmidt is the Senior Heritage Advisor Kaitohu Matua Taonga Tuku Iho Southern South Island for Te Papa Atawhai Department of Conservation. He was formally an independent heritage consultant and a Senior Archaeologist for Heritage New Zealand based in Dunedin. Matt has also been the New Zealand International Correspondent for the Asia-Pacific Cultural Centre for UNESCO for 13 years for whom he writes a paper annually on heritage conservation projects he has been involved in. Matt's interests in heritage span all periods of New Zealand's history and he has a particular interest in early Maori cultural heritage sites, contact period sites and sites related to pastoralism and gold mining.

 

Date: Thursday 17th June

Time: 5.30pm-6.30pm

Location: Hocken Library, Anzac Avenue, Dunedin

Free. All Welcome

 

Cheers,

Moira

Subject: Site in Syria could be world's oldest war memorial, study finds
To: NZAA eNews Editor <glaw@lawas.co.nz>



A burial mound in northern Syria has been identified by researchers as perhaps the world's oldest known war memorial.  The site, known as the White Monument, in the town of Tal Banat had previously been thought to be an ancient mass grave of enemy fighters. However, a report published in the journal Antiquity on Friday suggests it was a memorial for the community's battle dead from the 3rd millennium BC.
