A deer bone out of place, an upwardly mobile Waimate housekeeper, a secret WWII construction; stories suppressed, stories not yet written, the stories behind the stories.
In collaboration with Heritage New Zealand and the New Zealand Archaeological Association, PechaKucha Night Christchurch brings you an engrossing evening of Hidden Stories. For Archaeology Week 2019, PechaKucha Night Christchurch Vol.39 will be held in the Christchurch Town Hall, newly restored and sparkling.
