Māori History Wins the Royal Society Science Prize
Tangata Whenua: An Illustrated History has been honoured with the prestigious Royal Society of New Zealand 2015 Science Book Prize. Authors Atholl Anderson, the late Judith Binney and Aroha Harris, with publisher Bridget Williams, worked for several years with a team of writers, researchers, designers and editors, to produce this new history of the Māori people. Museums and archives around New Zealand provided thousands of images from which over 800 were selected, including images of the Waitore artefacts at housed at Aotea Utanganui. Museum staff are delighted the book has been honoured in this way.
