book cover courtesy of Syndetics Kohika : the archaeology of a late Maori lake village in the Ngati Awa rohe, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, edited by Geoffrey Irwin. (2004) 993.116 KOH.
The archaeological remains of a remarkably well-preserved indigenous Maori village are unearthed and analyzed in this collection of contributions from 20 scholars who worked at the excavation site. Abandoned because of flooding, the village of Te Kohika remained untouched for 270 years and preserved in a peat swamp until it was discovered in 1974. For the past 30 years, archaeologists have been researching the pataka storehouses, cooking shelters, homes, wood and fiber items, and storage pits at the site, making this one of the largest ongoing archaeological projects in New Zealand's history. Each essay offers an expert's opinion on the artifacts discovered and cultural observations disclosed by this landmark excavation. (Syndetics annotation)

Syndetics book coverEncircled lands : Te Urewera, 1820-1921, by Judith Binney.
Covers the first hundred years of the 'Rohe Pōtae' (the 'encircled lands' of the Urewera) following European contact. The Urewera became an autonomous district, with its own leaders after much land as lost, but the Urewera District Native Reserve was abolished by law in 1920. Binney recovers this fascinating history which deserves wider illumination especially in light of recent events.
