“In 2015 the development of 107 Wharf Street triggered an archaeological investigation that has allowed the layers of the past to be scientifically recorded and artefacts collected through excavation.
The job of the archaeologist is to unpick the evidence left behind, often buried, by people who have lived before us to understand the way they lived and when.” - Brigid Gallagher, MishMish Heritage.
Visit Tauranga City Library and see archaeological finds that illustrate fascinating phases of the town’s history from Maori to British Imperial troops to colonial settlement. It even has a well-known local photographer in mix!
