Meet Barry Brailsford


The Power of Place

 Barry Brailsford says his love of the land and the mystery of the past is his birthright. Born in Greymouth, near Te Ake Ake o Poutini, the ancient anchorage of the great navigator Poutini, and nurtured by the wild coastlines and forested mountains of Westland, New Zealand, he knew a childhood where the spirit was free to soar.


He graduated MA (Hons) from Canterbury University, was a member of the NZ Archaeology Association Council and a Principal Lecturer at the Christchurch College of Education.


In 1990 he was awarded an MBE for his contribution to education and Maori scholarship.
