Example text

This was the beginning of the Siege of Angband, which lasted almost four hundred years. Only scattered incidents broke this time of peace. After one hundred years there was a small attack on Fingolfin, which was quickly defeated. A century later Glaurung, then only a half-grown dragon, drove the Elves to the protection of the highlands, but he was forced to retreat from Ard-galen by the archers of Fingon. 7 The Fourth Battle (Dagor Bragollach, the Battle of Sudden Flame) During the Siege and the Long Peace, the Noldor were able to complete their defenses.

Rivers of fire rushed along fissures, burning Ard-galen and virtually all the watchful troops en30 The Atlas of Middle-earth camped there. 9 This was no brief battle, fought in a few days. The attacks began in winter and continued in force through spring, and thereafter never completely ceased. Dorthonion fell soonest to the onslaught. 10 In the east, all the defenses except those of Maedhros were destroyed and abandoned, for Glaurung came there, leading a mass of Orcs. Maglor's horsemen were burned on the plain of Lothlann,11 and he retreated to Himring and fought with Maedhros.

One other locale was worthy of note: Mordor. 8 Although no text supports my conclusions, Mordor might have appeared as part of a worldwide upheaval during the destruction of the Iron Mountains in the area where the Great Gulf partially drained the Inland Sea — the volcanic processes in the formation of that land would allow relatively rapid mountain-building processes. In Middle-earth, at first the lands were relatively free from evil, but the Men there lived in isolated pockets cut into the forests, or along the coasts and rivers — mostly far from the Elves and Dwarves.
