Ancient Bones of Small Humans Discovered in Palau

The diminutive people were similar in size to the so-called hobbit discovered in National Geographic Society-supported excavations on the Indonesian island of Flores in 2003.

Scientists classified the hobbit as a separate human species, Homo floresiensis.

According to Berger, the estimated brain size of the early Palauans is about twice the size of the hobbit brain.
