Stonefields Archaelogical Site

@Gavin McLean

East Polynesian settlement is evident with the site reflecting the classic period of early Maori culture with non-fortified villages. The remnants of stone and earthwork structures are clearly visible. Whare (Maori dwellings) were built on the terraces. Rua (food pits) were dug to store kumara. In addition to the Maori settlement remains there are also some old settler homesteads from the mid 1800s and a number of stone walls built by settlers to contain stock.
