I’ve got a job now, so I’ve been really slack in updating this site…sorry!

I also am working at a place with limited internet access, so I can’t check twitter and re-tweet stuff…so here is this weeks today in history from NZHistorydotnet

So this is pretty much an important part of NZ culture and heritage, and I felt it to be rather apt at posting a small tribute here on Heritage Abound. As this day commemorates the signing of one our founding documents…

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted up here…I’m making a plan to get more buildings and sites etc blogged about over this year.

To keep me going and to keep readers inspired I’m going to re-post tweets by Historydotnet, as they tweet a daily this day in history.

So here is today’s: Today in History 4 Jan 1958, Ed Hillary leads NZ party to Sth Pole http://bit.ly/7S2Xw3 – 1st since Scott in 1912 #onthisday

Also if you have a favourite place or exhibition let me know and I’ll do some research and blog about it for you.
