Maori artifacts dating back 500-600 years found near Canterbury





A new development on the outskirts of Canterbury has unearthed hundreds of Maori artefacts dating back 500-600 years.

The Pegasus Town development 25 kilometres from Christchurch is now being recognised as a significant cultural and historical site in New Zealand.

Initially the site where the discovery was made was to be a golf course, but those plans have changed now to preserve the history that has been found there.
