IN A HOLE IN THE GROUND THERE LIVED A HOBBIT
Scientists discover a tool-using, perhaps culture creating, prehistoric dwarf race
on the human family tree, which appears to be more complex than previously imagined.
Since the dwarfism of this Homo Erectus -like proto-human who probably coexisted for thousands of years with modern Homo Sapiens is being explained by hypothetical localized evolutionary pressures, that begs the question if scientists will one day make a discovery on the other end of the size spectrum. Perhaps we will find that there were once " giants " who walked the earth.
