About this book

In 2003 archaeologists digging in a cave on Flores Island in Indonesia made a fascinating discovery: they uncovered an extremely small humanlike skeleton. Research showed the skeleton wasn't that of a child. It was a grown woman who lived 18,000 years ago. Was this woman a very small human or a newly discovered ancestor of us all? The discovery of these little people amazed scientists all over the world-but caused bitter controversy among the researchers involved.
