Dinosaurs diverged from their archosaur ancestors approximately 230 million years ago during the Middle to Late Triassic period…Paleontologists believe Eoraptor resembles the common ancestors of all dinosaurs; if this is true, its traits suggest that the first dinosaurs were small, bipedal predators.” – Wikipedia.org
(Remember the average man 5’11 – 6’, is small compared to an average dinosaur.)
With 230 million years worth of evolution (more then enough time to spawn mankind [85 million years]), what would a race of bipedal dinosaurs eventually evolve into and what technology would they happen to have? Planes, trains and automobiles?!
In 85 million years man went from primates to outerspace. Imagine what we could do with another 145 million years?

looks more like dwarfism to me

That skull is obviously human, though deformed. There are many diseases as well as many weird customs that can cause these deformations, ever seen the skulls of the people of Southern America whos heads were bound and constricted, or the feet of certain japanese women whos feet are bound from birth
What do you think people would have made of the Elephant Mans skeleton if they knew nothing about it?
There is no 'reptilian race' never has been, never will be, other than the simple small reptiles that inhabit the earth, but anything without an opposing thumb is pretty much doomed to be little more than an animal

Some of the ancient artifact [millions of years old]that have been found on Earth could have been from such a race.
