When Hobbits Were Real

We already know about small-bodied, small-brained hominins in our human-fossil record. That’s why it was so shocking in 2004 when anthropologists discovered a tiny unknown hominin on the Indonesian island of Flores. Although only a meter tall and appearing to  be not very old, it had features of an older hominin. The specimen–Homo Floresiensis–became commonly called “The Hobbit,” because of its short stature and oddly proportioned feet. Tune in to learn more about The Hobbit from PBS Eons.
