Meet Homo floresiensis–the extinct little man who is (possibly) going to give us silly Homo sapiens a run for our money when it comes to being the most interesting hominid in the last few million years.

Nicknamed “the Hobbit” because of its child-like size, H. floresiensis has been the subject of much continuing debate and inquiry since its discovery in 2003.

    Thanks a lot for the mention, and I think there will be one or two surprises to come from this story, especially as they’re back working in the cave, on the trail of more clues – nice blog btw, and all best wishes for it in the future – Tim
