This time last year a did a blog about scientists who had found small skeletons on the island of Flores,which is east of Bali and midway between Asia and Australia.
The skeletons were found in a cave and named 'Homo Floresiensis.'
It's what we call 'Hobbits.'

There were many skeletons found but there was one in particular that had intrigued the scientists because it was of a full skeleton.
One of the skeletons, that of a woman, is believed to be 1 metre (3.3feet) tall and weighed about 25 Kilograms (55 pounds) and she was around 30 years old.
Her skull was the same size of a grapefruit.

The scientist believe that these bones are 18,000 years old.

Scientist have again found small bones and skeletons, this time in a cave in Palau.
This is east of the Philippines.
They thought they had found some more Hobbits, but they soon found out they had not.
The reason for this is because of the shape of the skeletons.

Again there are small boned and are estimated to be 3-4ft tall and weighed between 70-90 ponds.
The only difference between these skeletons and the ones found in Flores, was the shape of them.
The skulls were rather unusual.
When they had a good look at the skulls they found that all of them were the same, by that I mean rather unusually shaped.

The skulls lacked chins and had deep jaws, they had rather large teeth and small eye sockets.

The scientist are obviously looking into this more seriously because of their unusual shape.
No-one can explain this.
I believe that these skeletons are not as old as the first ones found in Bali but I wonder if they are a relative of the hobbits?

I would find it interesting if they could tell us who they were.

Very interesting Annette. I hope the scientists examining the skull found at the childrens' home on Jersey can come up with some positive data to throw some light on what took place there in the past. The ramifications are enormous but justice must ultimately prevail. The truth will always come out in the end. There must be no hiding place for evil doers.

I still have Laura on my prayer list and will pray for her in my church on Easter Sunday.

I hope you and yours enjoy a happy and peaceful Easter. May I thank you once again for your continued interest in my blog. David.x.

David,
Yes, I do believe that justice will be done now.
Now they have found that skull the truth will be found, and rightly so.
It's great the things they can do these days with DNA and everything.There is no hiding place.
Thankyou for your comment and your thoughts for Laura.

You have a clear scientific bent, Annie! You'll have to keep us informed of developments.
