Guld og Kaos

@ VOL 3 ON JAN 22, 2019

Mit oplæg handler om historien bag vores arkæologiske udstilling ”Guld og Kaos”. I år 536 e.Kr. indtraf en serie vulkanudbrud, der skabte en lille istid med en formørket sol, frost om sommeren – alt i alt voldsomme klimaforandringer som fik store konsekvenser for mennesker i jernalderen. Måske har de overlevende fortalt historien videre og måske kan trådene til Fimbulvinteren, optakten til Ragnarok – trækkes tilbage til lige netop denne tid !

A 'Top Secret' Hole in the Ground and Other Hush Hush War-Time Construction in Selwyn

@ VOL 39 ON APR 27, 2019

Robyn Burgess is a built heritage surveyor and historian. She has had the great fortune to have had many years working in the field of heritage identification and management, in both public and private sector roles. In New Zealand she has held senior heritage positions at the Department of Conservation and Opus International Consultants, and currently works for Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga as a heritage advisor covering Canterbury and the West Coast. Her favourite roles overseas have been to record at-risk historic buildings for the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England and, in three brief but glorious stints, surveying ancient archaeological sites in Greece.

Robyn is living proof that if you study what really interests you, then chances are you can thrive in a career working in that field too. She studied history, art history and philosophy the University of Canterbury, museum studies at Massey University and, as a mid-career professional, has had the joy of hands-on heritage conservation training in Italy and China.

In this PechaKucha Robyn will enlighten us about a former ‘top secret’ World War Two construction effort in the Selwyn District.

London and Paris House: a Touch of Fancy in the Frontier City

@ VOL 39 ON APR 27, 2019

Jessie Garland is an archaeologist and artefact analyst, specialising in the material culture of nineteenth century 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.

In her spare time, Katharine is the president of the New Zealand Archaeological Association.

Matariki Pecha Kucha an inspired evening

Thanks to the many people who made the effort to attend our 18th Pecha Kucha Night at Orokonui Ecosanctuary on Saturday night. It was a chilly evening but we were thoroughly warmed by the inspiring stories of our presenters and the occasional plaintive cry from a nearby kiwi! WHO SAID WHAT? After introductions by MC Aaron Hawkins, the evening started with a look at the astronomy of Matariki by Otago Museum director Dr Ian Griffin who was a very enthusiastic speaker. Our second speaker Tahu Mackenzie, who works at the Ecosanctuary as an educator, was very excited about the wildlife there and especially their poo! Danielle Trilford from Oil Free Otago gave a chilling but inspiring talk about the harm deep sea drilling could do in our environment while environmental lawyer Alex Kruize looked to his future life in Calgary Canada. The first half closed with Professor Paul Tapsell sharing his experience of taonga and marae and how they make New Zealand unique.  Archaeologist Hannah Sadler kicked off the second half with a challenge about what constitutes indigenous archaeology, then local artist and craftsman Mike Fay shared his enthusiasm for creating creatures from wood, while ex-Night Club owner turned Reiki healer, Dion Blake Freeman challenged the audience to discover their real purpose in life. Painter Anya Sinclair shared her beautiful landscapes inspired by our local environment and more recently that of Rio de Janeiro. The night closed with Brendan Flack's momentous journey across Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa on an ocean going waka rounding off what was an entertaining and thought provoking evening.  One unique thing about the evening was the singing which often took place following a presentation when the whanau of a presenter sang a waiata in support of the presenter. The Puaka/Matariki Pecha Kucha Night gave us much to cherish and we look forward to bringing you two more inspiring Pecha Kucha events this year. THANKS TO Our presenters, Orokonui Ecosanctuary for hosting us, our MC Aaron Hawkins, Tania Turei, Tania Robinson and Jenny Chen, Richard Dingwall,  Josh Thomas, Antony Deaker, Pecha Kucha central in Tokyo and Pecha Kucha founders Klein Dytham Architecture.
