For thousands of years different peoples have been drawn to the islands of the South Pacific. Wave after wave of settlers bringing their culture to those waters. The current perception of this settlement of New Zealand is that the first voyagers arrived between six and seven hundred years ago. This theory is under threat.New investigations now challenge the accepted history. The information contained within this book is drawn from lost or discarded archival material, a storehouse of old lore, scientific understandings and previous observations worthy of reappraisal by open minds.
