And this is the final word. Again.
Hobbit species may not have been human
This time, Peter Brown could raise the ire of some of the scientists who supported him in an academic debate that degenerated into an international scandal.
Brown, who initially placed the species in the human genus Homo and named it Homo floresiensis, is considering stripping the hobbits of their human status.
Well, we here at ArchaeoBlog hope they keep it in Homo because “Australopithecus hobbitus” just doesn’t roll off the
tongue keyboard as nicely.
And barely appropos of anything, seems to dislike “hominin” (as opposed to “hominid”) as much as I do.
