Archaeology Week 2018
Tēnā koutou katoa
Just a reminder that the dates for Archaeology Week 2018 are 28 April to 6 May.
 The basic objective of New Zealand Archaeology Week is to increase public awareness of archaeology in New Zealand. Archaeology Week promotes the work of New Zealand archaeologists both at home and abroad as well as promoting the importance of protecting our archaeological heritage. The types of events that would be appropriate for New Zealand Archaeological Week could include a special exhibition at a museum, public talks on archaeological work in New Zealand or abroad, historic walks promoting the archaeology of a town, archaeological site visits and/or visits to an excavation.
The response to Archaeology Week 2018 has been excellent to date.  Interest has been received from the Auckland City Council, Wellington Archaeological Group and Wellington Underwater Club, Department of Conservation, Polish Heritage Museum, the student associations at Auckland University and the University of Otago, Mercury Bay Museum, Te Kongahu Museum of Waitangi, Heritage Taranaki, Southland Museum, North Otago Museum and Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga.  
Area coordinators to help the National Coordinator have been set up for Northland, Auckland, Hauraki/Corromandel, Napier/Hastings, Wellington, Canterbury/West Coast and Otago.   Area Coordinators are listed below.
Northland: Jono Carpenter
Auckland: Rebecca Philips
Hauraki/Corromandel: David Wilton
Napier/Hastings: Elizabeth Pishief
Wellington: Mary O’Keeffe and Victoria Grouden
Canterbury/West Coast: Katharine Watson
Otago: Sam Kurmann
Please contact me at archaeologyweek@nzarchaeology.org for more information or to discuss possible events and/or interest in the proposed New Zealand Archaeological Week 2018.

You will see from the style the eNews consists largely of links.

Our preferred form is  a few lines at most, with a link or an email contact for further information.

At a pinch we may self-host longer documents to link in the eNews but they must be submitted as pdf or word documents as attachments to emails. They need some processing so there may be a delay in their being used.

If you are running a conference we will usually run a link once only - and if you don't have a website for it yet, then tell us when you have. 

Relevant job advertisements are welcome - there is no charge.
