Archaeological consultant and doctoral candidate, Katharine Watson, presents an illustrated talk on the archaeology of Margaret Stoddart's former family home at Godley House, Diamond Harbour.

Demolished following the Canterbury earthquakes, Godley House was a much-loved landmark and destination for generations of Cantabrians.

Katharine will apply her recent research to the archaeological record to demonstrate how analysis of nineteenth-century buildings can reveal often untold women's stories.

This a ticketed event and will include light refreshments, as well as a viewing of the special exhibition: Margaret Stoddart: Garden Scene (a collaboration with Te Whare Waiutuutu Kate Sheppard House and Macmillan Brown Library Te Puna Rakahau o Macmillan Brown, University of Canterbury).
