The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

... Thorin I ... went into the far North to the Grey Mountains...; for those mountains were rich and little explored. But there were dragons in the wastes beyond; and after many years they became strong again and multiplied, and they made war on the dwarves, and plundered their works.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Durin's Folk

The Dwarves hid themselves in deep places, guarding their hoards; but when evil began to stir again and dragons reappeared, one by one their ancient treasures were plundered, and they became a wandering people.
