I was sick for a week so missed a fair amount but participated in most discussions and did some individual research regarding wellington past and present uses to tie in with the work Sam has been doing. I investigated the location of old pa sites as well as the way in which wellington expanded when it was initially settled by Europeans. this revealed some interesting trends about how spaces around town have been used through out time as well as demonstrating how we have changed our landscape, blocking off or building over many of the natural waterways that originally existed. It also investigated the trends in shore line and how it has retreated due to both natural processes and human reclamation of land for construction.
