HALFLING, HOBBIT, HOLBYTLAN, LITTLE PEOPLE, PERIANNATH


Hobbits (W. "hole-dwellers") from the ancient Northern word 'holbytlan' (Ad. Halflings, S. Periannath), are a mortal race almost certainly related to Men, though their origins are unknown. Their most distinguishing feature are their short stature, even the tallest Hobbits rarely exceeds four feet in height.

Originally a widespread people, hobbits are found in much of the north of Middle-earth and down the Vales of Anduin. As the Third Age passed, the Hobbits moved north and west, eventually founding the land of the Shire in 1601.

Hobbits are often called 'Little people' by men, where the two races live among eachother, like Bree.
