Walking into New Zealand's past

From Standing Room Only, 12:30 pm on 22 April 2018

The latest technology meets some of Christchurch's earliest buildings with the release of a new app in time for upcoming New Zealand Archaeology Week.

Heritage New Zealand has been working with the Christchurch Archaeology Project and University of Otago on a GIS walking app so people can find out more about the city's characterful early pubs.

The app is part of a broader project aiming to get New Zealanders interested in the many archaeological discoveries - and the stories behind them - happening around the country.

Lynn Freeman spoke to Dr Rosemary Baird from Heritage New Zealand and JessIe Garland from archaeological consultancy Underground/Overground who's been an enthusiastic contributor to the new app, to find out more.
