Well, not quite, but I still find this discovery of a brand new, 3-foot offshoot of humanity fascinating. Basically, 90,000 years ago there were mini-humans hunting mini-elephants on an island and were killed out by a volcano.
Presumably after Frodo dropped the ring of power down Mount Doom. J
Now if they find the petrified remains of talking trees that walked, I guess Tolkien was on to something.
