As the great inland delta of the [[Entwash]] fed Anduin from the west, and Anduin divided into many channels, the marshlands of Wetwang were formed to the east of the Great River, south of the [[Emyn Muil]]. The [[Dead Marshes]] lay further east and may have been an extension of Wetwang.<ref>{{RK|Map}}</ref>
