Clearly, Sauron's forces in the Second Age were overwhelming, at least until the Numenoreans came into the picture. Then Numenor's overwhelming force...

An in-depth answer to this question is not feasible, since all we know about the relative strengths of Numenor and...

Bree is unique in several ways. It is very old, perhaps even dating to the earliest westward migrations of Men. It is a town on a major east-west thoroughfare (though by...

I have previously posted about the recurrence of prime numbers in Tolkien's writing. Let's see, the seven sons of Feanor? The seven rivers in Ossiriand? Not coincidence. Personally, my view is that...
