Lunchtime Lecture – Identifying Heritage

March 12

MEDIA RELEASE

Lunchtime Lecture – Identifying Heritage

Hauraki and Coromandel Peninsular people will be able to learn how to identify heritage places, and what makes these places so special in a one-off public talk next week (March 19).

Staff from the New Zealand Historic Places Trust (NZHPT) will present a lunchtime lecture as part of Thames Heritage Week looking at the different values that make these places so important, and different ways people help identify heritage in their own areas.

“Heritage places make an important contribution to the identity and well-being of local communities,” says Martin Jones, NZHPT’s Heritage Advisor Registration, who will be one of the speakers at the lecture.

“These places can date to different times in the past, and can take many forms – some of which we will look at during the talk.”

Being able to identify these places – and understanding the characteristics that give them heritage value – is an important part of providing long-term protection according to Martin.

“The talk will look at different tools that can be used to explore the importance of heritage – including both documentary research and physical observation,” he says.

“Communities play a vital part in this process and can assist in identification and promotion of heritage in their own patch. Our public talk will help give people the skills needed to undertake this important work.”

Don’t miss ‘Heritage Identification’, Wednesday March 19 at 1pm at the Treasury. Admission $5 per person – tickets available at the Treasury (open every day 11am-3pm throughout the Heritage Festival).
