Summary
Kohika was a late Maori lake village in the Bay of Plenty occupied for a period in the latter half of the 17th century and unusually preserved because of its wetland location. Abandoned because of flooding, it remained untouched until 1974 and its excavation and analysis has been a 30-year task by a large number of scholars from different disciplines, making this perhaps the major archaeological project of recent times. The diversity of the evidence uncovered and the specialist analysis done on the material revealed extensive information about the social and domestic activities of a village community well before the advent of Pakeha. In chapters by 20 different experts on, for example, diet, wooden artefacts, fibrework, obsidian, houses (including the oldest-known carved house), and animal remains, the book offers convincing conclusions on the trade, economy, leisure, and social hierarchy of these early New Zealanders and is an important contribution to our understanding of late prehistoric Maori culture in the North Island."--Publisher's description
