A book tracing the history of Maori from their earliest known origins to the 21st century has won the Royal Society of New Zealand 2015 Science Book Prize.

Tangata Whenua: an Illustrated History was written by Dr Atholl Anderson, the late Dame Judith Binney, and Dr Aroha Harris and published by Bridget Williams Books.

The judges said it brings together physical sciences, social sciences and the humanities in a dazzling work of scholarship.

They said it has a broad public appeal and will be read widely by New Zealanders keen to discover who we are and where we come from.
