Encyclopedia of Arda

The entry for the Under-way in the Encyclopedia of Arda (updated 27 November 2011) confuses the stone slab that partially blocks the entry to the Under-way from the main tunnel with the Undergate (a gate with brazen doors at the end of the Under-way that blocks the entrance to the ground floor of the Tower of Cirith Ungol from the Under-way). Since the entry for the Under-way on Tolkien Gateway contains the same confusion of the stone slab with the Undergate, I changed the page for the Under-way on Tolkien Gateway. It can be clearly seen from the first page of the chapter The Choices of Master Samwise of The Lord of the Rings that this is so. --Akhorahil 15:59, 1 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Delved by the orcs

The Lord of the Rings contains no statement that the Under-way was delved by the orcs. It only contains a general statement that the orcs had delved many byways on either side of the main tunnel in Shelob's lair to escape the lair. It is probable that the Undergate and the Under-way were already made by the Gondorians, because it is mentioned that the Gondorians built the Tower of Cirith Ungol. As a consequence, I deleted the speculative statement that the Under-way was delved by the orcs. --Akhorahil 16:08, 1 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
