After the return of the [[Noldor]] to [[Middle-earth]], King [[Thingol]] described the Caverns to his kinsman [[Finrod]]. Inspired by [[Menegroth]] in [[Doriath]], and seeking a hidden place from which to be safe from the forces of [[Morgoth]], Finrod chose those caves to build his great underground fortress, and established Nargothrond. He was aided by the [[Dwarves]] of the [[Ered Luin]], who also made for him the [[Nauglamír]], the Necklace of the Dwarves and gave him his famous epithet, ''Felagund'', Hewer of Caves. Finrod rewarded them with treasures he brought from [[Tirion]].<ref name=return>{{S|Return}}</ref>
