The Institute of Continuing Education at the University of Cambridge are offering a course entitled “Tolkien’s amazing world: understanding Middle-earth and how it came to be” this January.

This weekend The Hobbit Fan Fellowship and Warner Bros. are hosting a special screening of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – Extended Edition. The event is set to feature a few surprises, so make sure you join the live stream!

A specialist at Blackwell’s Rare Books has found a loose map of Middle-earth featuring annotations by J.R.R. Tolkien inside a copy of The Lord of the Rings owned by the late Pauline Baynes.

This year’s Oxonmoot, held 10–13 September at St Antony’s College Oxford, was a great success. If you missed it, or you simply want to relive part of the experience, here are a few videos to whet your appetite.

ADC Books are selling a unique collection of original letters, photographs, and postcards from the family of J.R.R. Tolkien. The asking price is £249,750.

Today marks the 60th anniversary of the publication of The Return of the King, the third and final volume in J.R.R. Tolkien’s best-selling novel The Lord of the Rings.
