Back to Tolkien

Μέχρι τώρα επικρατούσε η αντίληψη ότι “tiny, hobbit-like humans” που βρέθηκαν στην Ινδονησία κ έζησαν 18.000 χρόνια πριν, απλώς έπασχαν από κάποια γενετική διαταραχή, την microcephaly. Πλέον, πιστεύεται ότι αποτελούν ένα εντελώς νέο είδος:
Scientists have determined that the first skeleton they found belongs to a species of human completely new to science. Named Homo floresiensis, after the island on which it was found, the tiny human has also been dubbed by dig workers as the “hobbit,” after the tiny creatures from the Lord of the Rings books.
Αντιπαράθεση, όμως, εξακολουθεί να υπάρχει upon “The People That Time Forgot“.
