Prehistoric hominin females, illustration. From left to right: Flores Man (Homo floresiensis), Cro-Magnon (European Early Modern Humans or EEMH, Homo sapiens sapiens), and Neanderthal (Homo neanderthalensis). Flores Man fossils from between 95,000 and 13,000 years ago were found in 2003 in Indonesia. This hominin was very small, just over a metre tall. Neanderthals inhabited Europe and western Asia between 230,000 and 29,000 years ago. Both Flores Man and Neanderthals co-existed with Cro-Magnons, who emerged in Europe from around 35,000 years ago. Cro-Magnons became modern humans, but the other two went extinct.
