Ancient Maori site uncovered in New Zealand
Published on May 16th, 2012 | by Admin0
Significant evidence of early Maori settlement in the Kamo area of Whangarei was discovered during work on a bypass last year.
Archaeologists found hangi pits, fire scoops, post holes and stone mounds, as well as charcoal believed to be almost 800 years old. Earthworks for the bypass were carried out under an archaeological Historic Places Trust authority.
