The Tolkien Road

A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

0174 – LOTR TV / 2nd Age Deep Dive – A Description of Númenor

Continuing on our Second Age Deep Dive (in preparation for the upcoming Amazon Middle-earth TV show), this week we dive in to a little known chapter from Unfinished Tales: “A Description of the Island of Númenor.” Lots of interesting stuff in the details, and this gives a good general picture of Númenor’s geography as well as its culture and religion.
