Drawing upon the author’s ongoing examination of the archaeology of missionization in New Zealand, Pewhairangi also places it in international comparative context. When a small group of three English families landed in the bay below Rangihoua pa in 1814, under the protection of its chief and inhabitants, the story told in Pewhairangi began. It is the story of New Zealand’s first permanent European settlement at Hohi, of the church mission that it represented, and of the other mission communities subsequently established in the Bay of Islands at Kerikeri, Paihia, Te Puna, and Waimate. It tells of Ngapuhi and Pakeha engagement, as neighbors, over four decades: the chiefs, the missionaries, the mastermind Samuel Marsden, and the wives and children of all these men. The book also records the multiple comings and goings in the Bay of the amateur and professional artists whose works supply many of the book’s fine illustrations.
Angela Middleton is a consultant archaeologist and honorary research fellow in the department of anthropology and archaeology at the University of Otago. She is the author of Kerikeri Mission and Kororipo Pa: An Entwined History, Te Puna: A New Zealand Mission Station, and Two Hundred Years on Codfish Island.
