The remains of an individual interred about the middle of the first millenium BC, in association with Lapita ceramics, on the island of Lakeba in the Lau group of Fiji, have been examined. The long bones were robust and showed marked bowing and other evidence of considerable muscularity. The femur had an oval fovea and marked platymeria (index 71). Stature was estimated at 1,715 mm. The incomplete jaw was of 'rocker' form on one side and showed a very slight antegonial notch on the other. The morphology of this individual is fully compatible with the known Polynesian skeletal phenotype.
