At the end of the Third Age, a remnant of the Drúedain still lived beneath the feet of the White Mountains, and in the lands westward. Theirs was a strange and ancient race of Men.They had an unusual affinity with nature seldom seen among Men,and were said to possess unique powers.The Northmen who settled in Rohan knew nothing of their ancestry and imagined them to be hardly more than beasts, at least until the time of the War of the Ring. For this reason the Rohirrim called them the Wild Men of the Woods. It is also possible that the Púkel-men that line the road to Dunharrow in the White Mountains were created by the Drúedain.
