An archaeologist has been brought in after an old pistol was unearthed during construction of the Victoria Park Tunnel near Auckland’s waterfront.
The semi-loaded pistol was discovered in an old well last month, and it could have even been a murder weapon.
“The pistol was found on the very base of the well so it looks like it was thrown in there while the well was still in use,” said Archaeologist Sarah Phean.
I like that. There’s a linked video that has a quick photo of the gun, it’s a double-barreled pistol with one of the barrels having been fired,, hence the mystery.
