2010 Islands of History Conference
A conference for historians from Australia and New Zealand will be held on Norfolk Island from 18-25 July 2010.

Lectures will be presented by PHA members and local or visiting specialists. Topics cover: writing convict history, South Pacific maritime history, history for heritage, Polynesian migration, South Pacific history, heritage tourism, Pacific missions and issues and practice of public history. The conference will include site visits, tours of cemeteries and the Kingston and Arthur Vale Heritage Area, island orientation and free time to explore the diverse heritage of the island.
