"This latter division treats more especially of their history - properly so called - in which the various migrations of the ancestors of the particular tribes from whom the information was derived, are related in so far as the record has been handed down in the Whare-wananga, or Maori College. It is not to be expected that this record, which is very ancient, should be very full in its earlier parts. For we have to deal with transactions that took place - some of them - certainly some centuries before Christ, but how long ago it is almost impossible to say, and others in the early centuries of the Christian era." - from the Introduction, page v.
