Ngā Tohuwhenua Mai Te Rangi: A New Zealand Archeology in Aerial Photographs
Aotea south head, a place important in the traditions of Aotea and Tainui
A number of pā show at centre and top right on the terrace landform adjacent to the inner harbour on the right. The harbour entrance is out of the picture at top left. At centre, the prominent pā of rectangular outline is 75 m long by 30 m wide. A scatter of dense middens shows as a brighter white on the dune crests at lower left. These were probably the sites of settlements in low forest on dune soils that have since been overwhelmed by shifting sand. At right is the bay Hawaikiiti. The pā centre right is Turi Matai Rehua, while on the sand-covered hill at centre is Pukeatua, the place where Turi planted the first kumara.
All the vertical aerial photographs in this book are orientated so that the north point is to the top of the page.
