Archaeologist Mary O'Keeffe: digging our past

From Saturday Morning, 11:36 am on 24 October 2020

“Small things tell big stories” is Wellington-based archaeologist Mary O’ Keeffe's mantra.

She spends her time uncovering fragments of our past from building and roading sites, piecing together narratives about how we lived, and who we are today.

She's dived shipwrecks, worked on the Peka Peka to Mackays Crossing expressway north of Wellington, and was involved in the discovery of Plimmer's Ark.
