Sarn Athrad

Revision as of 12:36, 9 December 2010 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)

Sarn Athrad was the stony ford of the River Gelion across which the Dwarf-road from the Blue Mountains entered East Beleriand.

It was here that the Battle of Sarn Athrad took place between the Elves and Dwarves of Nogrod.

Sarn Athrad means "stone ford" in Sindarin (sarn + athrad).[1]
