Nasmith elostirion

The Tower Hills, by Ted Nasmith

The Tower Hills or Emyn Beraid in Sindarin, were a series of steep hills located at the west end of Eriador.

They lay about 30 Númenórean miles east of Mithlond, the Grey Havens of Lindon, and about 50 miles west of the White Downs, of old the border of the Shire.

HistoryEdit

The Tower Hills date back to Gil-galad's kingdom in Lindon when he built three tall towers, the highest of which was called Elostirion which had held an important Palantír that looked to Mithlond and the Far West.[1][2]

The Tower Hills formed the ancient border between the Elven realm of Lindon and the Kingdom of Arnor, and the Great East Road which led all the way to Rivendell ran through them.[3]

In SR 1462, Elanor daughter of Samwise Gamgee and her husband Fastred moved to the Tower Hills, founding the town of Undertowers on the eastern slopes of the Hills, and becoming the Wardens of Westmarch, when the Tower Hills became the new western border of the Shire.[4]
