cheap Canada Goose Prof Roberts says the discovery of a canada goose factory sale completely different species of human on the Indonesian Island of Flores canada goose uk outlet that lived until relatively recently, “put paid to this cosy status quo in one fell swoop”.There are many puzzles that remain about the Hobbit. The female skeleton was 1m (3ft) high and was a very primitive form of human. Her brain was about the size Canada Goose Online of a chimpanzee, yet there is evidence that she used stone tools.Dr Henry Gee, the manuscript editor who decided to publish the paper canada goose store in the journal Nature, said that it gradually dawned on him just how important the discovery was.”It is the biggest paper I have been involved with,” he told BBC News.”It surpassed anything else I’d been involved with canada goose uk black friday because it just kept running. People kept on talking about it and it became part of popular culture and a sign of a new view of anthropology. The days of the old linear models of anthropology were gone.The publication of the discovery on the Indonesian Island of Flores in October 2004, caused a sensation. The news that another species buy canada goose jacket cheap of human walked among us until relatively recently stunned the world.There were even questions about whether the Hobbit, named Homo floresiensis, still existed somewhere on the island. Perhaps there were other species of humans in other very remote parts of the world yet to be discovered?The notion that our species, Homo sapiens, was the cheap canada goose uk only species of human on the planet was for the first time in thousands of years Canada Goose Parka in doubt. Perhaps tales of yetis, giants and leprechauns have a basis from our distant evolutionary past.As it turned out no more fossilised remains of the Hobbit uk canada goose outlet have been unearthed since then, let alone the discovery of creatures from folklore. But those involved in the field are convinced that much more is Canada Goose Outlet yet to come, according to Prof Roberts.”The canada goose uk shop discovery of the Hobbit has opened up the credible possibility of other undiscovered human species being ‘out there’, perhaps buried metres underground like the Hobbit, or tucked away in a museum drawer, unrecognised for what it truly is another new species, but misidentified as an ‘unusual’ modern human or an earlier species of human well known to science,” he told BBC News.”I think the discovery of the Hobbit helped create an atmosphere in which it’s okay to expect the unexpected, and that we shouldn’t get fooled into thinking that we have all the answers, ever.”Mystery arrivalThe Hobbit’s existence on Flores is still a complete canada goose black friday sale mystery. How did it get there? Flores is east of the so called Wallace Line which canada goose coats on sale demarcates islands canadian goose jacket that have rarely if ever been connected via land bridges to the Asian mainland. canada goose clearance sale So did this Canada Goose online early, very primitive species of human have the wherewithal to build boats and sail across the sea?Many believe that canada goose the Hobbit stems from an earlier form of uk canada goose human called Homo erectus which arrived on the island around a million years ago and gradually became smaller over generations through living on an island, where there Canada Goose Jackets were Canada Goose Coats On Sale scant food resources.Others believe that its origins are from ape like creatures which left Africa more than two million years ago. Critics even proposed that the creatures were the remains of seriously ill modern humans.Prof Roberts told BBC News that the team never seriously thought that they canada goose coats would stumble across a new species of human. The researchers had been looking for the ancestors of the first Aboriginal Australians. At that time, the question of when Australia was first settled by Homo sapiens was hotly contested.So his reaction to discovering the diminutive partial skeleton, he said, was “a mix of utter puzzlement and extreme excitement”.The research team was convinced that the remains were clearly not those of a modern human not even one with a medical condition.”I was absolutely mystified. buy canada goose jacket It wasn’t the early modern human skeleton we’d been hoping to find, but what was it?”Something completely new cheap Canada Goose to science as it turned out but that’s the beauty of serendipity. And it also goes to show the value of keeping archaeology ‘real’ and carrying out excavations, rather than relying on gee whizz technology and computer modelling to provide all the answers.”If cheap canada goose online we’d not done any digging, the world would be none the wiser that this creature had ever inhabited this part of the planet.”More bones of H. floresiensis have been found, but no new skulls as yet. And there is still the possibility that there might be remains of similar creatures elsewhere in the region, according to Prof Chris Stringer, of the Natural History Museum in London.”There is the possibility that the experiment Canada Goose sale that produced the Hobbit could have produced similar experiments on other islands in the region, in Sulawesi, the Philippines and Timor and are awaiting discovery.The scientific priority now for the group is to build up a picture of how the species was canada goose clearance distributed, when it first arrived on Flores and when and why it finally went extinct cheap Canada Goose.
