Description

Debbie Argue Homo floresiensis: A review of research - the first 13 years

Presented by Museum Friends and the Canberra Archaeological Society, Wednesday 18 April 2018, 6pm

'Thirteen years ago the discovery of a small partial skeleton and other comparable bones were attributed to a new hominid species, Homo floresiensis. This caused a sensation - headlines swept around the world, blog pages were crammed, controversy reigned. And no wonder. Nothing like it had been discovered in this part of the world. The species is tiny– around one meter tall, with a very small brain of 426 cubic centimeters, combined with a totally unexpected suite of characteristics. I will review this colourful history, explain the strange combination of characters, and present the latest research'.
