Scientists have discovered more remains of the strange, small people that once lived on Flores island, Indonesia. The announcement last year detailing a single, partial skeleton caused a sensation when it was claimed to be a human species new to science.
Homo floresiensis, as it was called, was little more than a metre tall and lived 18,000 years ago. Now, the same team tells Nature journal it has skeletal remains from at least nine of the "Hobbit-like" individuals.
If the work at Liang Bua keep producing more evidence, the idea these may represent another species will gain much more traction. This will be fun to follow over the news few years.
