Emil’s map incorporates information from The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales and the History of Middle-earth series to create one of the most accurate and details maps. The map is overlaid with hotspots detailing information about the locations in Beleriand and the events that took place in the First Age. The map follows Emil’s popular map of Middle-earth.
The LOTR Project was founded in 2012 as a giant family tree of every character in Tolkien’s legendarium. Since then, it has expanded into a blog, a timeline and, more recently, maps. Emil’s website is an excellent resource for Tolkien fans.
