Please come along to hear Ian McGibbon on the Joint Historical and Archaeological Survey of the Ari Burnu (Anzac) Battlefield at Gallipoli. Ian was New Zealand's representative on the survey.

Some background: The New Zealand, Australian and Turkish governments agreed in 2005 to carry out a detailed survey of the Anzac battlefield at Gallipoli. Subsequent discussions determined that the initial survey focus would be on the area on the second ridge between Lone Pine and Quinn’s Post, in which the road runs through no man’s land. The first field session of the survey was carried out in October 2010. This comprised an in-depth examination of the area from Johnston’s Jolly Cemetery to Courtney’s and Steele’s Post Cemeteries. In this talk Ian will explain the nature of the survey and the procedures adopted and outline some of the findings of the survey. The second field session is to be held in September.

Place: Ministry for Culture and Heritage, Te Wharenui seminar room, ground floor, Radio NZ House, 155 The Terrace. Walk through the main doors and continue straight ahead down the corridor and turn right.
