Australia: 700-Year-Old Skull Washes Up On Beach

A 700-year skull has washed up on an Australia beach, AFP reports. Police have launched an appeal for information. Tests revealed that the skull belonged to a non-Aboriginal child between the ages of four and six.

Police believe the skull must belong to a private collector or museum, but are mystified as to how it arrived on the Sydney beach in September.

ABC reports that the skull was found September 12, 2008, at the Basin, north of Mona Vale Beach.
