Event description
Find out what the archaeology of Margaret Stoddart's family home at Godley House can reveal about her life and times.

About this event

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.

Katharine Watson studied archaeology at the University of Otago before embarking on a career as a consultant archaeologist in Christchurch, where she worked extensively on historical sites in Canterbury and the West Coast. In 2017, she sold her consultancy to start her PhD, looking at what houses in nineteenth century Christchurch can tell us about life in the city. She is the immediate past-president of the New Zealand Archaeological Association and co-owner of the blog The City Remains.
