We PRESERVE, SHARE & RESEARCH OTAUTAHI / CHRISTCHURCH'S ARCHAEOLOGICAL PAST and share it so that everyone can benefit and learn from it's work.


The earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 have led to significant discoveries about how people lived in 19th century Christchurch: the food they ate, the medicines they took and the toys children played with.

We aim to research, analyse and educate about these discoveries, but we cannot achieve our goals alone. Find out how you can help.
