An aboriginal cranium and mandible (M4903) was recovered from a deflated midden deposit within the National Parks and Wildlife Reserve on the Cape Portland Estate, Cape Portland, northeastern Tasmania. No additional skeletal material was found during follow up excavation procedures that took place about two weeks after the discovery. The skull is within the known morphological range for Tasmanian aboriginals.
