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.
