(Difference between revisions)
Line 1: Line 1:
The '''Walls of Night''' were the extraordinary walls that surrounded [[Arda]] in ancient times, beyond [[Ekkaia]], the [[Encircling Sea]]. In the west and east of the World, Ekkaia was wide, and the Walls were a great distance from land. In the north and south, however, the [[Encircling Sea]] was much narrower. This was how [[Melkor]] returned into the World during the time of the [[Lamps of the Valar]], coming secretly over the Walls of Night into the north of [[Arda]], and building there his fortress of [[Utumno]] beyond the knowledge of the [[Valar]].
