Friday, March 22, 2013
WHAKATANE, NEW ZEALAND—A human skull has been uncovered during renovation work at Whakatane Hospital. The area was once a traditional cultivation site for the Ngati Awa people, so the land had been blessed before construction work began. The skull, which is thought to be of Maori origin, will be reburied.
