In 2004, the discovery of tiny and bizarre human fossil bones on the island of Flores, Indonesia, set off a furious debate over what the "Hobbit" bones represent. Are they fossils of a previously unknown primitive branch of the human family, or the remains of a dwarf race of modern humans suffering from a strange pathological condition? Witness the first investigations of the cave site since the controversial fossil was first revealed.

Interesting Find

Comments about PBS NOVA: Alien from Earth DVD:

I liked seeing the archuology dig and to find out about early man living when modern people lived. I missed this epsosode on TV. It is good that the scientists looked at possible reasons the Hobbit and that disease has been ruled out and even found out one with smaller brain than modern humans could have make the tools that were found by their remains. It is interesing to see the first early human bones that were discovered, the remains that were found in Georgia and other bones from other early humans.
I am in the middle of watching this again too and look forward to when the excavaton will be worked on again since it said they will continue at the same site and the other place or places that was mention.

The Intrigue of Human Paleontology

By SGR Anthro

from Amherst, MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS NOVA: Alien from Earth DVD:

Alien from Earth presents a very fine summary of the controversy surrounding H. floresiensis. More than this, it presents the impact that this fossil may have on theories of hominine evolution—and on evolutionary theory in general. I would recommend this DVD as a competent introduction to human evolution that may spark further investigation of the subject by the general public while winning a larger audience over to the importance and intrigue of such studies.
