Archaeologists work on a causeway made from mānuka logs under Wall Street in Dunedin in 2012. The causeway was built around 1848–50 as an early method of creating a road over muddy ground. It was rediscovered in 2008 by contract archaeologists carrying out the consent work for a mall development. A plan was developed for a section of the causeway to be preserved and placed in a glass atrium under the new mall.
