Research

Where to start? I am passionately interested in the history of the West Coast of South Island, New Zealand. I’m pretty obviously a history nut and all sorts of topics get my attention, but I like to focus on stories that are not well known or where the real nitty gritty hasn’t been delved into in enough detail (at least according to me).

Topics currently under investigation are:

  • Women on the NZ goldfields
  • Crime on the goldfields
  • Maori gold-miners
  • Chinese women in New Zealand
  • Remote heritage on the West Coast (huts & tracks – who built them, how and why?)
  • All sorts of interesting individuals from New Zealand’s past and some current day ones – you know who you are!
