Hooker Raymond H (Ray) -2011

Ray Hooker developed an interest in prehistoric archaeology while working at New Zealand Steel in Waiuku.


Ray operated as a consultant under the name of Arcsearch. In his years of consulting he produced hundreds of reports ranging from minor inspections, through mitigation excavations, to substantial pieces of historical research into archives and the relationship of what was found on paper to what existed in the field. He was valued by his clients for being a completer - meeting client and regulator requirements and deadlines. Ray's contribution to the published literature was slight in comparison.
