Middle-Earth gets a Geological Makeover

Middle-Earth gets a Geological Makeover | Advance Placement Human Geography | Scoop.it
"As if J. R. R. Tolkien wasn’t brilliant enough with his creation of Middle-Earth, it appears that using his numerous maps and illustrations provided, supplemented by observations from within the texts themselves, a geological reconstruction can be achieved! I recently came across this old article from the Proceedings of the J. R. R. Tolkien Centenary Conference, Oxford, England, 1992, and figured it was worth sharing."

As many Lord of the Rings fans prepare for the release of the new Hobbit movie, I wanted to share two things that might be of interest.  First this article is linked to a geologic 'reconstruction' of Middle Earth.  Added to this is this fabulous Middle Earth Map Dress (complete with the traveling cloak collar, the Tengwar script on the belt and hem, and the matching clutch with the one ring). 


Why are do we study geography?  As Samwise Gamgee reminded us, we need to remember “that there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.”
