Anfalas

Revision as of 07:24, 29 October 2008 by 72.225.168.28 (Talk)

The Anfalas, or Long Shore, also known as Langstrand in Westron (the Common Tongue), lies between the rivers Lefnui and Morthond, south of the Green Hills of Pinneth Gelin. It was not densely populated, as it is far from central Gondor and there were no cities.

During the War of the Ring, the people of the Anfalas were harassed at the coasts by the Corsairs of Umbar. Lord Golasgil led a long line of scantily equipped hunters and fishermen, and also his own household, to the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.
