T.A. S.R. Event


In the reckoning of Gondor, for record-keeping purposes, the Fourth Age began on 25 March of T.A. 3021. The Third Age was held to have actually ended when the Three Keepers departed over the Sea on 29 September of 3021.[1] The Hobbits held that the Fourth Age began on 2 Yule of S.R. 1422, which would have been in T.A. 3022, had the count of Third Age years continued.[2]
