Has anyone heard this in the news? The new species of humans found on Indonesia? It's really pretty fascinating. They're now saying they could have been a new species entirely!
The team, which discovered the tiny remains in Liang Bua cave on Flores, contends that the population belongs to the species Homo floresiensis - separate from our own grouping, Homo sapiens .
The group argues that the "Hobbits" are descended from a prehistoric species of human - perhaps Homo erectus - which reached island South-East Asia more than a million years ago.
