Abstract

The excavation of adjacent sites R11/887, 888 and 899 in Tamaki are described. Together the sites formed part of an extensive open settlement occupied in the sixteenth century. The rescue nature of the excavations provided a valuable opportunity to examine a greater area of an open settlement than is usually possible. Specific activities were identified at R11/887, including cooking, living, storage and stoneworking areas. Site R11/888 has been interpreted as a specialist site with huts for storage of equipment and a living floor of laid shells. At R11 /899 there were several superimposed houses and a group of deep storage pits. The layout of the sites presented an impressive illustration of an unfortified hamlet, probably associated with occupation of the pa at Te Apunga o Tainui.
