Edward Eyre and the marriage of the year, 1850
Professor Charlotte Macdonald is researching a remarkable double wedding ceremony in Auckland in 1850. Bishop Selwyn married a Maori couple and a Pakeha couple. It was supposed to be a symbol of faith and a united country. Professor Macdonald is one of the Humanities staff who'll be taking part in Victoria University's Big Day In on Saturday 7 September.
