Much of this issue is devoted to Christchurch, in the immediate aftermath of the September 2010 Darfield earthquake. Cantabrian John Wilson provides an eyewitness account of the effects of the earthquake on his home, suburb and city. Michael Kelly writes about implications of the earthquake on heritage, the appointment of Ian Athfield to the New Zealand Historic Places Trust Board and the protection of the Jean Batten Building.
This issue also contains a version of a paper Barbara Gawith presented at the Professional Historians Association (New South Wales, Australia) conference on Norfolk Island as well as David Verran’s reflections on getting his first book published. There is a short obituary of Graeme Hunt and a look at Auckland City Libraries new website dedicated to its Sir George Grey collection.
