Singing the Trail: The Story of New Zealand Mapping

  • City Gallery, Civic Square 101 Wakefield Wellington New Zealand (map)

Since its discovery by humankind, Aotearoa New Zealand has been carved up many times with different kinds of knives.

John McCrystal gives an illustrated lecture on his stunning new book on all of the different kinds of maps that have articulated Aotearoa since it was first sighted by humankind. From the aural mapping of the Polynesian voyagers, to the earliest mapping taonga we have, to town plans, and traces of our mountains and coastlines, this is a treasury of cartographical knowledge beautifully collected and considered. Join John for a visual journey through time, place and Aotearoa.
