Aitutaki also has some hidden archaeological treasures. There is an island tour in a small shuttle bus that is a fun way to see Aitutaki and find out about island life. To explore the inland tracks built by the American servicemen during World War 2, and also to find out about the ancient pre-Christian marae (sacred sites) and their archaeological excavations, you are best to take a 4-wheel drive tour. Ngaakitai Pureariki is owner/operator of Aitutaki Safari Adventures and was the driving force behind the clearing and replanting of Te Poako o Rae Marae on the eastern side of the island. This site covers around 1.6 hectares (4 acres) and has intriguing groupings of large stones standing upright in the ground. Carbon dating has revealed the marae was established around 1000AD. Ngaakitai was also director of the excavations on the site of the Paengaariki marae, working with archaeologist Mark Eddowes and a field crew of Aitutaki locals. These excavations are still in progress and are expected to reveal information about when the marae was built and the ceremonies and activities that took place there. There are already indicators of the ancestors' ancient beliefs and practices. The project is ongoing and all artefacts recovered will be measured, drawn to scale and photographed. They will remain on the island.
