Clean sweep: Zimbabwean cricket fans kept smiling and did their best to support their outclassed team at Napier's McLean Park last Thursday, but it was to no avail as the Black Caps demolished
the visitors by 202 runs to sweep the one-day international series 3-nil. Black Caps captain Brendon McCullum belted his fourth one-day century for his country, 119 off 88 balls, to help New
Zealand compile a record total of 373/8, which they easily defended as Zimbabwe expired for 171 in 44 overs. It is not the end of international cricket season in Napier. The Black Caps can
expect a much sterner test the next time they play at McLean Park, when they take on cricketing heavyweights South Africa in the second one-day international on February 29.

Iwi will care for bones
By CAROLYN VEEN
Mystery bones unearthed at a
Napier property a few weeks ago
will be reburied by local iwi, after
consultation with the New Zea-
land Historic Places Trust.
Ann Neill, general manager of
NZHPT Pouhere Taonga in Wel-
lington said police investigations
into how the human remains
(koiwi) had been competed, con-
cluding that they were historic.
Local archaeologist, Elizabeth
Pishief, is talking to hapu on
behalf of the trust about a suitable
place there they will be reburied,''
We do not know who the
remains are from or how old the
burial is, but they are most likely
to be Maori and from pre-
settlement period -- this will be
confirmed once the further results
She said the area in which the
remains were found is a part of
Napier traditionally associated
with a particular hapu.
The conversations are continu-
ing with this hapu, and they have
asked for privacy about the details
of reburial at this time.''
Napier CIB had received exam-
ination results from forensic
archaeologists that showed the
bones to be around two centuries
old, discounting early theories
that the remains could belong to a
victim of the 1931 earthquake or a
cold case murder.
Detective Sergeant Emmet
Lynch of the Napier CIB said the
exact age of the remains could not
be established with certainty, but
they were believed to be
Forensic anthropologists have
determined that the bones are of
an adolescent Maori woman,'' he
The findings reinforced what
Napier anthropologist Elizabeth
Pishief suspected when she first
visited the site.
She was quite certain there
would be other Maori habitation
sites ago along Marine Pde, which
was largely a wide shingle spit
200 years ago. The bones are far
too old to identify any specific
hapu...theHistoric Places Trust
will pass them on to local iwi who
will bury them in a Maori ances-
tral grave site,'' she said.
Ms Pishief believed the young
Maori woman's death and burial
She stressed the importance of
becoming aware of these sites''
saying if anyone stumbles across
them they should phone the
police, and not assume all buried
bones belong to animals.
