Human bones found at Tas beach 'very old'

Skeletal remains found on the water's edge at Lauderdale Beach, east of Hobart, are believed to be very old and Aboriginal in origin, police say.

The bones, discovered by a local man walking his dogs on Sunday, have been examined and police say they are very old, Aboriginal in origin and likely to have been exposed to the elements for decades.

Further forensic examination by an anthropologist is scheduled for Tuesday.
