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.
