Island has become famous because of small human beings remains (called by scientists - "Hobbits").

Below fragment of "Nature's" article:

"It sounds too incredible to be true, but this is not a hoax. A species of tiny human has been discovered, which lived on the remote Indonesian island of Flores just 18,000 years ago.

Researchers have so far unearthed remains from eight individuals who were just one metre tall, with grapefruit-sized skulls. These astonishing little people, nicknamed 'hobbits', made tools, hunted tiny elephants and lived at the same time as modern humans who were colonizing the area.

News@nature.com tells the story of a find that changes the world of palaeoanthropology, and challenges our perception of what it means to be human."

    I am very frustrated with all of the “options” on the left side of the page that is being displayed! I cannot read what I have gotten in my search and I cannot get rid of them!

    Please tell me what to do. Thank you.
