Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"The Polynesian ancestors of the Maori, when they settled in aotearoa New Zealand brought with them long-established traditions and techniques for gorwing staple food crops. Within the New Zealand landscape, there is ample evidence of the continuation of those gardening practices, and of the changes and adaptations that were made over time to accommodate local circumstances and environmental conditions. This report describes the nature and location of that garden evidence at a broad regional level. The discussion about different types of Maori garden sites draws on archaeological excavations and research"--P.6.
