The First Taranaki War.

For those that don’t know I’m writing a thesis entitled “The First Taranakl War: A Divergent History”. Which examines the hisotriography and popular perceptions of the First Taranaki war, in particular why one version has become so well established in popular culture while the other traditional version has been largely marginalised.

I’ll be taking a trip over to New Plymouth in a few weeks to walk the ground and if any there has anything they want to share on the subject I’d like to know about it.

Please note: First Taranaki War 1860-61. Must stay focused at this stage of ones masters thesis.
