With so many roading and housing developments underway in many parts of the country, our archeologists are flat out recording and saving important artifacts. New Zealand's first Archaeology Week is underway, with events around the country aimed at encouraging us to think about our archaeological heritage and how best to protect it.

From the Far North to the Deep South there are talks, historic walks and museum displays.  Lynn Freeman talks tolk to archaeologists Jono Carpenter, based in Whangarei, Hamish Williams, who works for Underground Overground in Christchurch and James Robinson from Kerikeri.
