Artefact

Artefact (2017)

Artefact takes viewers on adventures through time with a focus on artefacts and taonga at the heart of gripping and often surprising historical dramas. The series also shines the light on contemporary themes and challenges viewers to think about what sort of Aotearoa we want to leave our children. Artefact connects today's New Zealanders with our ancestors' experiences and aspirations, through the powerful stories of the artefacts that have survived them. Each episode has a distinct theme and has a hero artefact we begin and end with. Throughout each episode we trace the stories of several taonga that relate to the theme. Some are in world famous collections, others are in small local museums or are cared for by whānau. Dame Anne is our informed guide, a vivid story teller who travels around Aotearoa and abroad to find artefacts and the people who connect with them and who will tell their stories.

The hero artefact is the Puketoi kete. Like a travelling suitcase, it contained several practical items used by early Māori as they moved around the South Island.
