The Hobbit Bilbo called Tûma Hugath "Tom Huggins" and immortalized the Stone Troll in the work entitled There and Back Again. Tom lived in the Trollshaws of Rhudaur with his brothers Bert and William Huggins. Together, they had a lair in Rhudaur in which they had slashed some rather fantastic items, obtained by luck and pluck from (most likely) other, more intelligent Trolls. Among their riches were the swords Orcrist and Glamdring as well as the short blade that Bilbo Baggins named Sting. Bert and his two brothers encountered Thorin and Company in T.A. 2941, Fooled by Gandalf into quarreling even more vehemently than usual about how to cook the fine brace of Dwarves that they had captured, the three Hugginses were caught in the sunlight and turned to stone. They may stiil be seen, to this day, in the Trollshaws.
