University of Otago archaeologist Prof Richard Walter is
''absolutely delighted'' the university has received a
$176,397 grant to develop a ''living archive'' for the
Blenheim-linked Rangitane o Wairau tribal grouping.
At least $2 million will be needed to safeguard the future of
weak or leaking buildings at the Dunedin Gasworks Museum, and
more funds are being sought from the Dunedin City Council,
heritage advocates say.
