Hobbits live?

Reuters is reporting that a new line of three foot tall humans has been found in Australia. This new race of Homo floresiensis lived nearly 18,000 years ago in and around Indonesia. These diminutive, hobbit-like hominins are descendents of Homo erectus and have relatively large brains. It is thought that they were wiped out by a massive volcanic eruption 12,000 years ago.

Are we descendants of Frodo?
