A hobbit Internationale

There was an international meeting in Indonesia about the Flores hominids last week, including scientific presentations and a visit to the cave. I have a regular correspondent who very kindly gave me a short report on some of the proceedings, which included CT scans of the mastoid process (See here for why that may be relevant).

Reporter Elizabeth Culotta was at the meeting, so there will likely be an article about it in Science somewhere in the next few issues.
