Skull Bay

There is archaeological evidence of ancient occupation at the northern end of this bay in the form of two large rectangular pits located on a north-west-facing spur. In the small gully at the centre of the bay there is also evidence of broken oven stones, midden material, and chips of pakohe (argillite).1
