Tasman Peninsula Chronicle No. 20

The Tasman Peninsula Chronicle #19 was published on December 12, 2020.

The development of the Tasman region in the post-convict era has many facets some of which are described in this Chronicle. Our contributors tease out the connection to a special place. They explore the nuance of that relationship and their knowledge of that place. Their stories are varied and fun.

Conservation is not about the real estate of the rich and powerful. History does not belong to those with privilege. This Chronicle demonstrates the diversity of life in our region and documents a shared history. Heritage assessments are made on the basis of aesthetic, research, social and historic significance and the degree of significance is moderated in terms of rarity, representation and authenticity, but for us it is the connection to place that is most important: the threads of our heritage.
