This is a fascinating approach to history through material culture, documenting a period of dramatic change in these South Pacific islands.

While the focus is on Pākehā settlement, the encompassing Māori world is present throughout - as the story of cultural encounter emerges from the archaeology narrative. Glimpses of a country in the midst of turbulent change abound in this richly illustrated book. Based on impeccable scholarship, this is a wonderful overview of New Zealand archaeology in the period"-- Publisher information.
