The Lives of Colonial Objects PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Lives of Colonial Objects free pdf "The Lives of Colonial Objects" is a sumptuously illustrated and highly readable book about things, and the stories that unfold when we start to investigate them. In this collection of 50 essays the authors, including historians, archivists, curators and Maori scholars, have each chosen an object from New Zealand s colonial past. Some are treasured family possessions such as a kahu kiwi, a music album or a grandmother s travel diary, and their stories have come down through families. Some, like the tauihu of a Maori waka, a Samoan kilikiti bat or a flying boat, are housed in museums. Others a cannon, a cottage and a country road inhabit public spaces but they too turn out to have unexpected histories. Things invite us into the past through their tangible, tactile and immediate presence: in this collection they serve as 50 paths into New Zealand s colonial history."
