Looking After Hobbits

What it's like to work on the world famous remains of Homo floresiensis, ancient humans nicknamed 'hobbits', in Indonesia.

In 2003 the scientific community was amazed by sensational news that remains had been discovered of Homo floresiensis, ancient humans who were just one metre tall with grapefruit-sized skulls. These astonishing little people, nicknamed 'hobbits', lived on the remote Indonesian island of Flores over 18,000 years ago and their complex and dramatic story still causes controversy today. Join Museum expert Lorraine Cornish as she tells of her recent visit to Indonesia to work on these amazing fossils.
