Ancient remains found at New Zealand construction site

Builders working in Kaikoura, New Zealand, have uncovered ancient human remains, jewellery, hand tools and ochre.

The remains will be reburied in a specially designated area at Takahanga Marae, in Kaikoura.

Runanga chairman Maurice Manawatu said the latest discovery was a classic example of the importance of a cultural monitor, because kaitiakitanga played an essential role in all such discoveries.

“It is about taking care and guardianship,” he said.
