What’s it all about? Archaeological research and community partnerships at SPAR

Karen Grieg | Southern Pacific Archaeological Research

Southern Pacific Archaeological Research (SPAR) is a Research Unit in the Archaeology Programme, School of Social Sciences, at the University of Otago. SPAR carries out archaeological research and community partnership projects in New Zealand and the Pacific, and also offers consultancy services.

In this seminar Karen will give a brief overview of SPAR’s background, and highlight some recent projects: research into one of New Zealand’s first industries, community-based projects addressing climate change, and archaeological investigations as part of campus new build projects.

Karen Grieg is a Co-Director of SPAR where she has worked nearly four years since the completion of PhD study. Prior to that she spent many years working in the field of archaeology and heritage management, working with a wide range of public and private sector organisations, including several years as an archaeologist with the NZ Historic Places Trust.
