BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | 'Hobbit' joins human family tree

BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | 'Hobbit' joins human family tree:

"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.

The fact that little people feature in the legends of modern Flores islanders suggests we might have to take tales of Leprechauns and Yeti more seriously."

The emphasis is mine...
It's interesting how more and more "legends" are found to be based on some truth.. No smoke without fire??
