Video from Mysterious Middle East
"Could the hobbits and dwarfs from mythology be real and be part of a pre-Human civilization? In the 1800s, the Canadian anthropologist Robert Grant Haliburton investigated encounters with mystical red skinned pigmy tribes in Morocco and Libya. Remnants of similar anomalous people (and their modern day descendant have been found Iran's "City of Dwarfs" and Makhunik. These people have been linked to the theories of Dr Susan Martinez, (author of ‘The History of the Little People), where she states that these people and their descendants could be what's left of a global pre-human civilization that existed before the Great Flood." from video introduction.
The world before The Flood of Noah was very different than our world today. The population was no doubt much less but also the worldview of the people that were alive was very different. What we know about that time is but rags and tatters but nevertheless it remains an intriguing area of study and speculation.
Like all other human disciplines archeology is often tainted by sin and personal viewpoints. History also is not the most objective either. We have seen the objective bias by those in all the sciences when it comes to God's Holy Word and how the Earth and its history relate to that.
Subjects like Giants and the Nephilim have been marginalized by many. And of course what little information we have has also be sensationalized by those who seek to attribute the earths past to aliens etc.
Is there objective physical evidence of the pre-flood world today?
If we allow that what is often called Mega-lithic and the many other ruins of unidentified civilizations and the numerous cave systems around the world could be from the pre-flood time there ostensibly could be evidence right in front of us.
This video discusses possible anomalous tribes in the middle east, perhaps dwarves?
"Little Harateen" or "Baraka" or "Oulad Mebrok", "Blessed Tribe" or "Son's of the Blessed" were the names used for them in the region. Were they just a tribe or clan of very short people?
According to written accounts they worshipped the same pagan gods as the Egyptians, which means they worshipped Demons.

There is much about our world that we do not know. The pre flood world would I am sure astound us and the intelligence and skill of those humans would also be astounding. The biblical description of Angelic creatures mating with human women indicates how fantastic reality can be.
