HIGHLIGHT on Education: The Indonesian Heritage Society presents Homo Floresiensis ~ A New Species of Hominin. Sometimes discoveries in the field of human evolutions are so extraordinary that they force scientists to reexamine theories years in the making and long held to be correct.
Two such remarkable discoveries occurred in Indonesia. The first was the fossil of Java Man, found in 1891.
The second was an almost complete skeleton found in 2003 on Flores. She was nicknamed ‘the hobbit’ after J.R.R. Tolkien’s *Lord of the Rings *character because of her small stature and large feet.
