The remains of Homo floresiensis were first discovered in 2003.
In Australia, scientists from the national University found that Florensky hobbits (Homo floresiensis) are descended from a common with the Homo habilis (Homo habilis) ancestor, not from Homo erectus, as was supposed earlier.
The researchers conducted an analysis of the morphological features of the skull, jaws, teeth, arms, legs and shoulders. It turned out that the hobbits were more primitive than Homo erectus (Homo erectus), which is considered the direct ancestor of modern humans. Thus Florensky people, probably relatives of Homo habilis, who lived over two million years ago.
According to experts, Homo floresiensis, could first appear in Africa and then migrate to Indonesia. It is also possible that with habilitada their common ancestor left Africa, after which he gave rise to a line of hobbits.
The remains of Homo floresiensis were first discovered in 2003 in Indonesia on the island of Flores. Their age reached 13-95 thousands of years.
