The Kai Manawa wall is as spectacular as it is enigmatic. This wall is located on the shores of Lake Tahoe in New Zealand. Other than how it looks, what makes it interesting is its age. This wall is old enough to predate the academia’s strictly documented notion of the country’s historical inhabitants.
In an excavation in New Zealand, archaeologists uncovered a wall that is estimated to be 33,000 years old. The wall is located near the coast of the country and has a variety of shapes and sizes which suggests it was built by human ancestors long before humans developed agriculture.
The wall has been found to be one of the biggest cultural achievements of pre-human society. Furthermore, it is believed that the wall was built by humans as a fortification. This finding raises many interesting questions about how humans lived in this area 33,000 years ago and how they used it while they were staying there.
Kāi Manawā Wall was discovered in New Zealand during the construction of a harbor. It’s 333,000-year-old and was created by natural forces.
An ancient, 33-meter-long manmade wall was discovered in New Zealand on Tuesday as construction workers were dredging the harbor for sand.
The discovery is significant as it could be more than 300,000 years old and has remained preserved without being eroded by water or other natural forces.
The stone wall made of dolomite is believed to have been built by early human settlers who lived in New Zealand 3 million years ago and it will be examined with the help of a drone to ascertain its purpose.
The wall, which has been nicknamed the Stonehenge of New Zealand, is made with rocks from different levels of the Waitaha River delta that were transported by natural forces. It was revealed through an aerial survey in 2016 and confirmed by excavations at nearby sites.
The discovery of this manmade wall has contributed to archaeologists’ understanding of how humans interacted with their environment over the course of time and how they had a significant impact on its formation.
As far as experts know, the island of New Zealand was only colonized during the past 800 years. However, this massive wall found in the area is at least 2,000 years old. Aside from this weird fact, it also has tell-tale signs of being related to other ancient buildings worldwide.
The controversial wall was first made known to the public around the early 1990s. The New Zealand Guardian published a story by Barry Braille describing the mystery of this megalith in the Kai Manawa.
The stone wall examination indicated that it was at least 2,000 years old. Given its age, it was thought to have been built by previously unknown immigrants in New Zealand.
According to Forest Park, the oldest known evidence of immigrants in the country dates back a few hundred years. He called them the White Taaha, and they were allegedly wiped out when the Mallorys came to the island. Based on this proof, the White Taaha could have been the ones who built the wall.
Furthermore, another historian thinks the wall might link New Zealand to ancient Egyptians because of how it was built. There are also speculations that the White Taaha could have been related to ancient South American civilizations.
Twelve pieces of evidence support their claim. However, several members of the academia did not accept this new theory and were hostile toward these researchers. As far as officials are concerned, this wall is just a natural creation, and they wholly reject the notion of New Zealand’s history being different.
Regardless, other researchers are willing to test the age of this wall again. However, since the release of the theories above, the site has been closed to the public.
This puts the intentions of the New Zealand government into question. What do these institutions not want the public to know?
