New Zealand History

An accurate account of New Zealand History can really only be made by a professional historian or authority in the field. Someone who has extensive experience of research and study... essentially, I am not that person!

There are many people that are interested in the culture and history of New Zealand.

Whether it be because it is their home country, they have relatives there, they are studying in NZ, are thinking of moving there, or simply interested because they plan to take a holiday and would like to learn a bit about the history of the country before they travel.

Instead of making any attempt to write anything in depth about the history of NZ on this site, I considered the best thing to do for my site visitors would be to provide a list of links to other websites where I know there will be accurate resources and information about New Zealand.
