Recent Book: STONE WALL COUNTRY: THE DRY STONE WALLS OF THE BAY OF ISLANDS AND KAIKOHE BY CATHERINE BALLARD
The fascinating story of the bay of islands and Kaikohe dry stone walls, the origin of the stones and the people who built them. Based on recollections of living people, who give an overview of how the walls were built, and historical records. This district has hundreds of kilometres of dry stone walls. They are a defining feature of the landscape in several areas and it is no accident that those areas are dominated by small volcanic cones. The walls have become as much a part of the landscape as the volcanic cones from which they originated.

About our team/Mō te tīma
The Otago Archaeological Laboratories are a renowned research and teaching facility containing collections of nationally and internationally significant taonga and other archaeological materials. As well as excavated archaeological assemblages currently undergoing analysis, there are significant legacy collections whose curation is vested in the University, and high value zoological and geological reference collections. These materials support a wide spectrum of researchers in the archaeological community, but also those working in Zoology, Marine Science, Palaeogenetics and other fields. Although these are working laboratories with high throughput of research material, all assemblages and the standing reference collections are managed in accordance with current museum curation practices.
