Old settlement site found in North Malaita
Mr Rilifia of Keru Village near Malu'u sub-station told SIBC News that it is an interesting and unique finding.
Mr Rilifia says he had sent a sample of charcoal from what he believes to be a traditional offering site to the National Museum in Honiara for possible carbon-dating overseas.
He says he has not received any information about the sample whether it has been sent overseas for analysis or not.
Mr Rilifia says he believes the findings may be that of the early settlers in the Malu'u area.
An SIBC reporter has recently visited the site and seen some of the carved stones.
