A heritage display incorporating a part of Te Aro Pa in downtown Wellington will be unveiled at the site on Saturday.

Waatea News reports remains of the180-year-old pa were found during foundation work for an eight-storey apartment complex on Taranaki St.

Associate Culture and Heritage Minister Mahara Okeroa says that showing the small fragment of the pa that has been uncovered may help people visualise what else lies under buildings in Taranaki St - Courtenay Place.
