Archaeologist’s visit

On the 14th of January 2021, Elizabeth Pishief from Heritage Services, Archaeologist working for Heritage NZ, came to Whangawehi.

The goal of her visit was to sample a midden recently uncovered during the construction of the walkway and check if the work was carried out as indicated in our archaeological management plan.

The midden is made out of small size cockles and Tuatara with some fish bones. The study will hopefully tell us a bit more about the diet of our ancestors. We will keep you posted.

A big thank you to Liz for her support.
