Check out these two interesting hominin posts

John Hawks on John Hawks Weblog wrote about the undiscovered hominin from Denisova, Siberia. He cautions the usage of "species" when describing this individual as it is too soon to say whether the individual is indeed a distinct species.

On SEAArchNoel Hidalgo Tan wrote about stone tools found in Flores, Indonesia that dates back to about a million years ago. It is still inconclusive whether these tools belong to the "hobbits" or Homo erectus. 

A range of stone flakes were found (scale-bar: 10mm). Photo from BBC News.
