Event details

The Buckland children lived in a time when they were expected to be seen and not heard.

Playing and acting out over-heard adult conversations was a way for the Victorian child to try and make sense of the often-upsetting events happening around them, such as a parent getting sick or the death of a sibling.

Presented by: Highwic and Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga
