Hobbits Discovered in Indonesia

Holy shit:

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 three-foot (one-metre) tall species – dubbed “the Hobbit” – lived on Flores island until at least 12,000 years ago.

Even more intriguing is the fact that Flores’ inhabitants have incredibly detailed legends about the existence of little people on the island they call Ebu Gogo.

    What a wonderful find! This broadens our view of history. The oral, and oft-discounted, tales of such creatures now has a scientific basis.

    I applaud the persistence of the team.
