‘Hobbit’ Joins Human Family Tree

Scientists have discovered the remains of a previously unknown hominid species on an Indonesian island. The existence of these tiny people could lend more credence to legends of tiny people in other cultures (e.g. Leprechauns).

Scientists have discovered a new and tiny species of human that lived in Indonesia at the same time our own ancestors were colonising the world.

The new species – dubbed “the Hobbit” due to its small size – lived on Flores island until at least 12,000 years ago.

  1. Argh, you beat me to it, as I was about to POST. You know, I’ve always thought that all these legends must have some grounding in real history. What’s interesting (in the article that I read) is that these people co-existed with the Komodo Dragons. I am always thinking, that somehow, somewhere (in history), there must have been dragons leaving among us. It just goes to show you, scientists DON’T everything, and definitely, definetely, we have not discovered everything that’s true about human history.
