Núath

Revision as of 13:25, 29 December 2011 by Mithbot (Talk | contribs)

The Woods of Núath was a wooded area in the north of Beleriand. It was bordered in the west by the hills lying north-west in West Beleriand south of the Ered Wethrin, and in the east by Eithel Ivrin, the source of Narog. The river Ginglith began in it.[1]

Because the woods do not appear in the published The Silmarillion, they were left off the map of Beleriand.
