A book that was the culmination of the life work of a pioneering exponent of historical archaeology in Aotearoa New Zealand has won the prestigious Graham Connah Award.

The award is given once every five years by the Australian Society for Historical Archaeology for the best archaeological publication in Australasia.

Ian Smith died in Dunedin in January, soon after the release of Pākehā Settlements in a Māori World: New Zealand Archaeology 1769-1860.

Emeritus Professor Atholl Anderson from Ngāi Tahu says it’s the first comprehensive work on the historical archaeology of Māori and Pākehā from the eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries.

The judges commended as refreshing the way it examines the entry of foreigners into a Māori world, rather than the more common approach of seeing Indigenous peoples as outsiders to colonial settlements.

It is published by BWB.
