Digging for History
BY MIEKE KIRKELS
@ VOL 27
ON NOV 23, 2015
"... an African proverb he taught me: 'If the lions don't survive to tell their stories, the hunters get all the credit.' He wanted to tell the story of 260 men in his unit. He was the only one still alive."
In Digging for History from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 27, Mieke Kirkels tells the story of the segregated US Army in Margraten, Netherlands, and specifically the cemetary where many of the fallen WWII soldiers bodies now rest. As she dug further into the story of the graves, she learned about the nearly 1 million African-American soldiers who depsite helping to liberate Europe from Nazi Germany, go unrecognized in most history books. One of these few remaining living soldiers shared his story with her.
Kirkels believes that it is important to listen to people's stories, to listen with our ears and with our heart. Because history is about lives. Let's listen and read behind the lines...

Clara Watson is an archaeologist at Underground Overground Archaeology. She completed her master's degree at the University of Otago, where she looked at the archaeology of the New Zealand Temperance Movement, before moving to Christchurch to work as an archaeologist. Her role at Underground Overground Archaeology is as an artifact specialist, where she catalogs and researches the many interesting artifacts found at archaeological sites in Christchurch. Clara enjoys examining the various weird and wonderful objects used by nineteenth-century New Zealanders and finds it fascinating learning more about Christchurch’s early residents. In her talk, Clara will be speaking about an animal bone that was found on a central Christchurch archaeological site. What at first seemed to be just another sheep bone turned out to be from a completely different species, one with an interesting history on its origins in New Zealand.

Originally from North Canterbury, she spend six years working with and sharing the vast quantity of archaeology discovered in Christchurch after the earthquakes. She now lives in Melbourne, where she is pursuing a PhD in archaeology, exploring the ways in which the availability and use of goods in historic Christchurch contributed to the development and identity of the modern city. Jessie is fascinated by the relationship people have with things and the ways that we use them to construct our own worlds, as individuals and as a society. In this PechaKucha, she explores aspects of that relationship in early Christchurch through the hidden archaeology of the fancy goods stores and other shops that once stood to the north of Cathedral Square.
