Re: Ebay Listing - LOTR Lord of the Rings and Hobbit Limited Museum Collection

Yeah, same. The movies fit very well in their own "astethics" but do not fit my personal view of "Middle Earth".

Re: War Mattocks

I wonder if they had a vertical or horizontal "axe" head? The Vertical version wouls make quite a lot of sense, as you would have a batlleaxe and a pickaxe in one tool, good to fell both Orcs and Trees, and make roads/tunnels/forifications easily.

Re: Dúnedain Hats?

Perhaps a Phyrgian cap or a Late Roman Pill-box hat would work the best, if one wanted to go with the Romano-British influenced Dunedain.

The Cloth of Trotters clothes

So, in the early drafts of The Fellowship of the ring, Aragorn's role is occupied by a hobbit known as Trotter, a brown-faced ranger with a rather long nose. He is described as wearing wooden shoes, and was dressed in a "Dark rough brown cloth". Trotter is of course still a ranger, and the...

Re: The cult of Narsil

On the topic of Seaxes, i have found very strong evidence that the Nothern Dunedain used them! In drafts of the Rotk Denenthors calls the barrow-blade of Pippin a Sax, made by the dunedain of the north. (Paraphrasing)

Very interesting article about fish leather! Wonder if the Elves of Rivendell used Fish-leather for their boots?

Re: All plants, animals, food, etc. mentioned in The Hobbit

Have some good mentions of food in Perry-The-Winkle: 'I steal no gold, I drink no beer, I eat no kind of meat; the sheep went wild when they saw his face, and the geese flew over the walls. Old Farmer Hogg he spilled his ale, There were pikelets, there was buttered toast, and jam, and cream, and cak...

Re: Morgul Blade.

Re: Sleighs and other winter transport? And fur jackets

'Good gracious heavens ... NO!' said Gandalf. '... don't mention the word furrier again as long as you are within a hundred miles of his house, nor, rug, cape, tippet, muff, nor any other such unfortunate word!' ...

Other interesting mention of fur, Capes, Tippets and Muffs.

Re: Twelve Silver Pennies: coins of the Breelands

These are absolutely wonderful! It got me thinking, would the coins of bree be of local make, or would they have been made by Dwarves from the blue Mountain? My wagor is on the later, perhaps the Dwarves of Belegost (Yes, Belegost appears on one of the earliest of Tolkien draft maps as a settlement ...
