The Hobbit Enigma examines one of the greatest controversies in science today. Just what did scientists discover when they uncovered the tiny, human-like skeleton of a strange creature on the Indonesian island of Flores in 2003? Since this remarkable discovery was bought to the public's notice, a bitter dispute has split the world of anthropology. Are the bones a previously unknown and bizarre primitive species of human? Or some freak isolated occurrence? The Hobbit discovery continues to fuels debate and has forced us to rethink some of the most fundamental questions of human origins. How could these Hobbits have survived for so long and up until such recent times? Who were its ancestors? Is it possible that origins of modern humans are to be found in Asia and not Africa as previously thought? With exclusive access to ongoing interdisciplinary research and new advanced fieldwork, this is a comprehensive account of a startling new view of human evolution. The Hobbit Enigma forces us all to ask one the most basic, yet most difficult question of all - what does it mean to be human?
