From Nine To Noon, 9:31 am on 20 March 2018

Researchers say they have found the final burial site of the famous Pink and White Terraces, 132 years after the Mt Tarawera eruption engulfed them. A full archaeological investigation kicked off in September, using non-invasive scanning to determine if the terraces are still intact. The data showed the terraces were next to the lake outside of the volcanic crater, according to Rex Bunn, who led the recent investigation and co-authored last year's article in the Journal of the Royal Society of New Zealand.
