Ireland: Archaeologists Discover Remains of New Humanoid Species

Drogheda| A team of archaeologists affiliated with the University College Dublin, have unearthed three skeletons from a previously unknown humanoid species of extremely small size in a wooded area of Eastern Ireland. The specimens measuring between 47 and 61 centimeters are presumably from an entirely new species of humanoid, distinct from modern humans, which would have survived until the 12th or 13th century AD.

The bones which were presumably partially unearthed by a recent rainfall, and were found by three local children who were playing in the area. The young boys immediately contacted the police, believing they had found the remains of murdered children. The medical examiner called on the site, rapidly understood that this was not a modern crime scene, but seemed instead to be an unusual archeological site. He contacted the University College Dublin to ask for help, and the institution sent Professor Edward James McInnes to analyze the discovery.

The bodies of two females and one male were discovered with a small number of artefacts in what appeared to have been a small settlement, near the banks of the river Boyne. The team of archaeologists led by Professor McInnes, has named the species Homo minusculus, which means either ‘Tiny Man’ or ‘Is small in comparison’.

This tiny axe blade was found near the body of the male individual. It is presumed to have been both a weapon and a tool.

This tiny axe blade was found near the body of the male individual. It is presumed to have been used as both a weapon and a tool.

Various small stone Tools and weapons were found near the bodies, including an axe, two knives, a spear point and even two miniature sewing needles. These items suggest that the Homo Minisculus had only reached a technological level comparable to human hunters-gatherers from the Paleolithic period, as no pottery or metal items have been found on the site. Many bones from various small animals including squirrels, hares, moles and hedgehogs were found near the settlement, many of which bore traces of cooking.

The various dating analyses realized on the bones and artefacts have shown that they dated from somewhere between 1145 and 1230 AD, which means that the species would have coexisted with modern humans for more than 45000 years. This amazing discovery suggests than many tales and stories from the Middle Ages which were considered as fantastic by historians, could indeed be based on real facts. Homo minusculus could have inspired stories of leprechauns, elves and brownies that are common in European folklore.

Professor McInnes and his team believe that Homo Minusculus could have feared humans, and would have had very little or no interaction with the surrounding communities.

Professor McInnes and his team believe that Homo minusculus could have disappeared due to the destruction of its habitat by surrounding human communities.

It remains unclear at the moment if Homo Minusculus evolved from Homo erectus, from Homo sapiens idaltu or even from Homo sapiens sapiens, but its morphological similarities with modern humans suggest that it evolved as a separate subspecies towards the end of human lineage.

The explanation for its small size also remains a mystery, but Professor McInnes believes it could be linked to the scarcity of resources during the most recent glacial period which  extended the last years of the Pleistocene, from approximately 110,000 to 12,000 years ago.

After the discovery of the Homo Floresiensis (that would have stood about 1.1 m in height) in 2003, on the island of Flores in Indonesia, a human subspecies which is believed to have gone extinct about 30000 years ago, this new find proves that many other hominin subspecies did indeed coexist with modern humans for thousands of years.

  1. You idiots. Does JRR Tolken ring a bell. These are freaking Hobits. They’ve found Samwise Gamgee…

    • Thank you, Ronnie. I was wondering when someone was going to recognize a hobbit here! And BTW … I read the bible through as well … no mention of little people NOT existing, tho there is reference to giants.

  2. good collections ,,,thanks for sharing amzning stuffs

  3. Is this the Catholic Church involved in another cover up of childrens remains being found everywhere. Oh lets invent a “New” species, tell em “yep little fairy like people used to live here ” haha Just a thought to ponder 🙂

  4. makes me wonder will we ever find out more about these new species. There has been nothing found on Homo Floresiensis since Ling Bua 1 was discovered in flores so we may never know more. Amazing find but its a pity we may not find more of this species.

  5. These were the Leprechauns from folklore that came back to haunt your science and education. Alongside, you have found the little axe heads. If you dig with these axe heads, you should find the Pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow. It may take another 45,000 years to find. Sorry, but I couldn’t resist.

    • sweetheart they do not need to dig gold that way, they re so small and act in big groups like ants they can pass everywhere and climb easy everywhere. And that kind of an exe maybe was not for gold.. nor all of tham could be gold hunters

  6. You certainly sound like you know what your talking about Joan. Have you lots of experience being a horses ass?
    I am looking forward to more revelations about this tiny manlike creature, this could be where science and folklore meet.

  7. when I read comments such as these on a very serious subject, the saying keeps coming back to me: “there are more horses asses than there are horses”!

  8. If that is an Axe my finger is a nuclear probe. What conjecture!! What good would any implement that big do? Laughable.

    • The species they found were between a foot and a half to two feet tall according to the article. How big of an axe would you expect them to use?

    • ditto, exactly what Harmony said.

    • Well, an axe blade for a 6ft person is about 6-8 inches. So for a 2 foot person,that scales to about 2-2,.5 inches. That blade is clearly about 1 inch. Far too small. Maths!

    • It could be a hatchet. Possibilities gang.

    • The axe is supposed to be a primitive axe,or adze held in the hand by the blade, no handle. So how big should that be?

  9. Just proves that science is not always right. GOD does work in mysterious ways and for the good of all.

    • Huh? Did we read the same article? That isn’t what I got from that at all.

    • Tom, I’m not sure what you read or how you perceived it as being…God’s work in any way shape or form. It’s just a discovery of something that even the bible says could not exist. So I would suggest that you re-read this article.

    • Uh? So naive.

    • So according to your Bible, I can conclude that David was one of these little people and Goliath was a regular sized human.

    • If you’re going to the bible for historical evidence, you’re gonna have a bad time.

    • Tom you are an idiot.

      There is no such thing as “GOD”.

      Grow up and learn some science and stop wallowing in your primitive mythological twaddle!

    • No Tom, this proves EXACTLY the opposite. This proves that science will keep finding and proving things that the bible and religion say cannot and does not exist. You cant use “GOD” as an answer for stuff just because you don’t have an answer for it. You would fail…everything….. ever.

      who is god anyway but another fairytale .where as this fairytale appears to be factual

    • Spencer Morgan | November 27, 2014 at 3:44 pm |

      No… it doesn’t prove that at all. That is an unproven, and disprovable assertion.

    • You IDIOT. Where does the bible mention Leprechauns??????

    • Which God? Odin? Zeus? Osiris? Oh! right this was in Ireland! It must be Cernunnos!

      Fragget the groikery!

    • Not sure how this is proof of God, though I am a Christian. Some of these atheists comments are even more cringeworthy than your, though.

    • Joy, where in the bible does it say these couldnt exist? i have read and studied the entire bible and NEVER read that part

    • I don’t see how this confirms OR denies god’s existence. IMO, both sides of the comments here are naive and trite.

    • I think your God, Tom, is smaller than the recently discovered human remains. It’s you, however, that make him thus. Shall we give to God the credit for being much larger than ourselves? I think we should. The possibilities are endless. I find this discovery to be remarkable and exciting. I hope they discover a lot more.

    • Those little fuckers!

    • Something or someone had to start this whole process. Where do you think molecules and cells, it had to come from somewhere. How did that start? Pure science or is there more? Maybe it’s both, faith and knowledge. With our each other we wouldn’t have the will to continue. But there has to be a all creator. That is to me, I choose to call GOD.

    • This is truly a remarkable discovery. I love science, I love the fact we get to uncovered secrets of the past and the future … Great job to those kids that called the authoritys. 🙂

  10. What?? No pot o’ gold??
    Those damn scientists, always after their lucky charms.
    (Well done 😉

    • myliyttle guy likes lucky charms for breakfast,

    • For the love of Durga. NOT EVERYTHING HAS TO BE about the big book of fairytales, Tom. The g-d Bible contradicts itself more than Fox News does. Holy….

    • Peadar MacGhabhann | November 24, 2014 at 3:14 am |

      Watson , this is elementary , my dear Doctor, Tis where Darby O’Gill got rid of the “little people” he murdered for their gold, when in doubt WATSON , FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL .

      The ring? Did they find the precious? My precious!
