One month after the Indonesian seminar, in August 2007, the
University of Adelaide staged an Open Day.
The programme included a public lecture on ancient DNA deliv-
ered by Professor Alan Cooper, a molecular biologist and one of
Mike Morwood’s collaborators. About a quarter of his presentation
was devoted to LB1 – the ‘Hobbit.’ His remarks included the confi-
dent prediction that more ‘Hobbits’ would be found on Indonesian
islands and territories, that originally the remains of eight individuals
had been excavated at Liang Bua, but also that deep excavations
conducted after 2004 had not found any more ‘Hobbit’ bones.
