pilsner.urquell writes "Scientist have concluded that the 18,000 year old scull from Flores island is indeed a new species. Dubbed Hobbit and in the center of a heated scientific controversy where some scientists claimed that the skulls small size was the result of a rare condition.

They concluded the 3-foot-tall (1-meter) adult woman had a highly evolved brain, unlike that of a microcephalic person, confirming she belongs to the proposed extinct species Homo floresiensis, closely related to modern Homo sapiens.
