Visions for Dunedin: Our Heritage, Our Future
PUTTING YOUR BEST FACE FORWARD:
PHILIP DAVIS AND THE SIGNIFICANCE OF ARCHITECTURAL STYLE IN DUNEDIN
 
SPEAKER: Jeremy Moyle, originally from Christchurch, Jeremy has studied archaeology at both Otago and Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada. He has been involved with archaeological and heritage consultancy for the past five years and works as an archaeologist for Origin Consultants in Dunedin.
Dunedin's Victorian house facades are one of the most distinctive aspects of the city's streetscapes. In this presentation, Jeremy Moyle explores the significance of Dunedin's 19th-century architectural style through the story of Philip Davis, an English immigrant who settled in the city in the 1860s.
