#1059 - 03/05/05 03:24 AM Indonesian 'Hobbit' skeleton called a new human species

" A partial skeleton of a three-foot (one-meter)-tall hominid discovered in 2003 in an Indonesian cave and nicknamed "the Hobbit" is probably a new, dwarf species of human, said a study.

A team of scientists reached the conclusion after analyzing the skull of the estimated 18,000 year-old skeleton, one of several unearthed two years ago on the eastern Indonesian island of Flores. "

Its interesting that they have used the internal cranial skeletal markings to map out the Hobbits convoluted brain structures.
Now found to be of normal human intelligence, and regarded as a new species, they ought to continue and now check her/his DNA using its Dental pulp.
With a view to finding similar DNA in peoples living on mainland or near areas.
Not sure how many different sets of the Humans
species have been catalogued to date.
But future results could make essential reading.
