A name used by the Drúedain of Drúadan Forest for their neighbours the Gondorians. When Gondor was settled at the close of the Second Age, the Wild Men had long dwelt in the woods beneath the White Mountains, but they did not build from stone. By contrast the new settlers, especially in the early days of their kingdom, created great cities and monuments of stone. These the Drúedain named Stone-houses, and the people who dwelt in them were known as Stonehouse-folk.
