Exploring the 'Shadow City'

Exploring the 'Shadow City':  new archaeological discoveries made during the work Kainga Ora have undertaken recently and how this adds to our understanding of the history of the wider area.

Dr Hans-Dieter Bader 

I work as a consultant throughout New Zealand, together with Dr Janice Adamson through Archaeology Solutions Ltd. I am mainly a field archaeologist doing the regulatory work, exploration, excavation and GIS and feature / find analysis. Understanding the ancient landscape, how people reacted and lived within, changed their environment, or got changed by their environment are my main interests. Using remote sensing methods and bringing all data together in a GIS is essential for landscape archaeology.

I’m coming from Southwest Germany and since childhood I was interested in archaeology and history of the area I grew up in. Becoming an archaeologist progressed naturally from this early interest. The interest in using modern survey technology stemmed from a few years serving in the German army between high school and university. My first professional excavation was in 1984 and I have been working in Aotearoa since 1994.
