  After the stout-legged moa, the eastern moa was the most abundant species found in the large collection of moa unearthed at the famous Wairau Bar archaeological site in Marlborough.

The Wairau Bar site is an important member of a group of sites of colonizing so-called ‘moa-hunters’ who moved widely in search of large game (i.e. moa and seals) and new stone resources. The early colonization period of New Zealand is known for the extreme predation of fragile endemic species, most famously the moa ([3] pg ).   Taken together, these dates suggest that the moa-hunting horizon can be dated to somewhere between and bp, not bp. Caughley also conceded that if nephrite adzes, associated with those burials at Wairau Bar which he regards as post-moa-hunting in age, were actually from within the moahunting period, thus implying exploration of

The Wairau Bar is notable for its rich heritage. It is the earliest known site of human occupation in New Zealand; home to the first generation of Polynesian migrants, who became known as the Moa Hunter. They were thought to have landed their waka (canoe) more than years ago, settling in a land where birds flourished unchallenged by :// Get this from a library.

Wairau Bar moa hunter: the Jim Eyles story. [James R Eyles] -- The discovery of the ancient Moa-hunter burial sites at Wairau Bar in provided a new benchmark for archaeologists, ethnologists and anthropologists seeking to understand whose were the first   Wairau Bar.

In while fossicking on the family farm on the isolated and windswept boulder bank at Wairau Bar on the shores of Cloudy Bay in Marlborough a year-old school boy Jim Eyles uncovered ancient burial sites that contained perforated moa The Wairau Bar was rich in inanga, eels, flounders and shellfish, with abundant firewood for cooking.

Between and years ago, the large swan and moa associated with the Wairau Bar, and a number of other bird species in the rest of the country, became extinct due to hunting and habitat Subsequent diggings at Wairau Bar revealed hundreds of stone adzes and a range of personal ornaments interred, with other goods, in 40 burial sites.

TROTTER S INTRODUCTION INCE its discovery in Januarythe Moa-hunter site on the shingle spit at the mouth of the Wairau River on the northeast coast of the South Island, has become the best known archaeological site in New Zealand.

Numerous The North Zone area excavated lies directly across the estuary from the boulder bank moa-hunter site known as Wairau Bar. It had previously been identified as containing archaeological material The other “book-end” was derived from statistical analyses of high-precision radiocarbon dates on moa from non-archaeological sites.

Analysis of of the ages showed that moa were exterminated first in the more accessible eastern lowlands of the South Island, at the end of the 14th century, just years after the first evidence Aerial view of Wairau Bar looking east.
