The Angbor was the place where trials of law were held by the Haladin. During such trials, the Chieftain of the Haladin or Halad would sit on the stone itself. During the trial of Húrin on the charge of assaulting the Halad took place and turned into a riot, largely ending the Haladin's existence as a coherent people.[2]
