Human remains found during Waikato Expressway build

Archaeologists have discovered what they believe is a whānau of six, including four children.

It has opened a highway to New Zealand's rich history and Native Affairs was there for the amazing find.

Now iwi, Ngāti Haua, Ngāti Māhanga, Ngāti Wairere and Ngāti Kahukura are at the forefront of tracing who this family is and where they came from.
