"”Homo luzonensis” was only a few feet long."
"A new human species has been presented."
"”Homo luzonensis” was found in a cave on the island of Luzon in the Philippines in 2007."
"the Analyses of the remains were found is now finished and the researchers are writing about the find in the magazine Nature. "
"A new human species has now been presented, after they found bone remains in a cave in the Philippines for more than ten years ago."
"the Species has been given the name ”Homo luzonensis” after the whereabouts – the island of Luzon."
"the Archaeologist Armand Mijares, who works at a university in the Philippines asked his colleague and friend, Philip Piper, to examine the bones he had found in the cave on Luzon 2007"
"Piper. that is the archaeologist, the remains from the animals that their expertise, examined the findings when he found a relic, looks like a leg from a människofot. "
"the Bone was found to be about 67 000 years old."
"the Archaeologists wrote in 2010 an article about the strange discovery and the following year they returned to the cave on Luzon. They then found more bones from three different individuals. However, it was not possible to obtain any dna from the findings."
"The various bones that were found showed that there was a new petite human species, which thus got the name ”Homo luzonensis”. "
"According to Mijares, and Piper was not likely the species is longer than four feet, which corresponds to approximately 120 centimeters."
"Several prominent scientists and anthropologists, however, have questioned and been skeptical. Susan Anton at the university of New York and an expert on the species ”Homo erectus” on pointed out that the researchers did not find any skulls."
"It would make the study much more complete and convincing, she claimed."
"The new finding suggests that ”Homo luzonensis” would have been about 120 centimeters. "
"But how long are we today?"
"✓ For about a hundred years ago was the swedes at the in the world – but we are no longer. A study that came 2016 reported längdutveckling in 183 countries over 100 years."
"✓ the Results of the study shows that Dutch men and Latvian women are the longest on the planet. For men in the Netherlands is the average size now is 183 centimetres and Latvian women are, on average, 170 centimeters. "
"✓ Shortest, the men are from east Timor, with a genomsnittslängd of 160 centimeters, and women from Guatemala, which measures 149 cm from top to toe."
