Thursday, May 22, 2014
TAURANGA CITY, NEW ZEALAND—The brick foundations and large ovens of a bakery dating back to at least the 1870s through World War II have been unearthed on New Zealand’s North Island during construction work. “It is rare to find such a well-preserved bakery from this time period anywhere in New Zealand. The only other examples we have are from the goldfields of Central Otago and one site in Dunedin,” archaeologist Rachel Darmody told Sun Live. City council members and experts from Heritage New Zealand are considering how to preserve the site.
