    Thought it was interesting. They're saying they existed "at least 95,000 to 13,000 years ago" and the remains were around 18,000 y/o. They were about bout half our size, with heads about the size of a grapefruit. Found in caves on an island off of Australia. Believed to have co-existed with us in the same time period.

    "They weighed around 25 kilograms and had a brain smaller than most chimpanzees," Professor Morwood said. "Even so, they used fire and made sophisticated stone tools. Despite tiny brains, these little humans almost certainly had language."

    "We now have the remains of at least seven hobbit-sized individuals at the cave site so the skeleton cannot be some kind of freak," said Professor Bert Roberts, from Wollongong University.
