Barrows were earthworks and burial chambers made by Men in the Elder Days.

In the Third Age, they lay within the bounds of Arnor, and later of Cardolan, and the Dúnedain of Arnor used them to bury their dead.

The Witch-king of Angmar, though, sent evil spirits to inhabit the Barrow-downs, and they became a place of horror.
