Removing controversial statements from article:

  • "They animated the dead bones of the Dúnedain buried there, as well as older bones of Edain from the First Age which still were buried there.{{fact}}" --Morgan 23:31, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
  • "It has been speculated that Frodo was trapped in the [[uncommon words|cairn]] of the last prince of [[Cardolan]].{{fact}}" --Morgan 00:03, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
"It is said that the mounds of Tyrn Gorthad, as the Barrow-downs were called of old, are very ancient, and that many were built in the days of the old world of the First Age by the forefathers of the Edain, before they crossed the Blue Mountains into Beleriand, of which Lindon is all that now remains. Those hills were therefore revered by the Dúnedain after their return; and there many of their lords and kings were buried. [Some say that the mound in which the Ring-bearer was imprisoned had been the grave of the last prince of Cardolan, who fell in the war of 1409.]"
