Archaeological digital library
The NZHPT holds an extensive collection of unpublished archaeological reports - resulting from site surveys, excavations, research programmes and archaeological authorities. There are over 4500 volumes dating from the early 1970s to the present in the collection.
Māori heritage comprises a wide range of different places and items from the physical and tangible to the natural environment and the intangible. Māori heritage places are treasures, taonga, a distinctive and unique dimension within New Zealand heritage overall.
The NZHPT's Register informs property owners and the public about New Zealand's heritage places and assists protection of these places under the Resource Management Act 1991. Its size and scale make it a valuable information resource.
Archaeology is the discovery, recovery and interpretation of the surviving evidence of past human activity in its context in or above the ground. Archaeological sites are distinguished from other heritage sites because they are relics of our past.
