www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/hobbit/ An ancient legend on the Indonesian island of Flores tells of an elf-like creature similar to the fictional hobbit of novels and film. But a controversial 2003 archeological find not only suggests that there could be some truth behind the legend but promises to rewrite a key chapter in the human evolutionary story. NOVA investigates the discovery, analysis, and startling implications of the hobbit of Flores, on Alien From Earth.
