Shifting Grounds: Deep Histories of Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland
Shifting Grounds is a history of three places: Pukekawa / Auckland Domain, Maungakiekie / One Tree Hill and the Ōtuataua Stonefields at Ihumātao. Such tight focus is matched by a simple, elegant structure: each place is explored across just two times, mostly of a few decades – ‘narrative moments’ (p.13), as Lucy Mackintosh calls them. Only one of six substantive chapters, on Ihumātao and the Ōtuataua Stonefields, surveys change over centuries, from c1350-1840.
