Also, how did New Zealanders view war participation (as in times of The Boer War)? Were people drafted into the army, or did they volunteer for the cause? Please ignore this question if the answer is obvious; I haven't entirely studied Wikipedia's page yet.
Google / Ask.com tries:
New Zealand Archaeology, History of New Zealand Archaeology, New Zealand Archaeologists, "When was the first New Zealand archaeological expedition?"
Thanks in advance for anything you guys can give me! If you need an exact timeline of this guy's schooling/war participation/family, let me know and I'll post it up.
