Introduction*

The Lancefield megafauna site is located on the southwest edge of the small town of Lancefield, 70 km NNE of Melbourne. The site is located in a swamp, a depression (possibly formed by a collapsed lava tunnel) which is almost surrounded by weathered Pliocene basalts which have formed a laterite cap. A natural spring flow under this cap emerges at the swamp and the water then drains into Deep Creek, a tributary of the Maribyrnong River.

*Note that an abstract was not included with this paper, and so the introductory paragraph has been included here instead of the abstract.
