Mystery of the Human Hobbit
BBC Horizon tells the tale of a certain type of human only found in the fantasy world of Middle Earth, the remains of a human Hobbit. The human remains discovered were tiny, measuring at 1 meter in length. At first the archeologists believed it was a child, but later results showed that this human was in fact an adult. This discovery also opened up new questions, since this skeleton showed signs that were not very human at all including the size of the brain, skull, body shape and dating of the tools etc.. It seemed as if she was a different kind of human, a different species perhaps. This discrepancy led scientists to debate about the origins of the dwarf woman, and where her place in the evolutionary tree of human ancestors is.
