H. H. Scott, Curator of the Launceston Museum. The Skull, which has recently come to light, was discovered upon the North East Coast, and apparently represents the total "find," since extended search failed to add other remains. It is devoid of a mandible, but otherwise is extremely perfect, even the turbinoid bones being in situ-it is that of a young female. All the characteristics of the Tasmanian skull are in evidence, the age being certified to by the non-erupted wisdom teeth. Includes description, skiographs and photos of the skull.
