Identifying unmarked graves in Otago

From The Weekend, 8:35 am on 12 January 2020

Dr Peter Petchey and Professor Hallie Buckley from the University of Otago have worked with the communities, family descendants and local runaka as they've excavated the Milton's St. John's Anglican Cemetery, and at the Ardrossan and Gabriel Street Cemeteries in Lawrence. 

Concerned members of the community wanted to define the boundaries of the cemeteries and to confirm if there were burials in the unmarked sections of the fenced cemetary grounds.
