East Sindar

From Tolkien Gateway

East Sindar were the Sindar who lived in the wide open lands east of Doriath beyond the Girdle of Melian.[note 1] They were not under the rule of Thingol, and they practiced cattle-rearing and sheep-farming as well as growing grain and other crops - these they sold both to Doriath in the west and to the Dwarves of the Blue Mountains to the east.[1]


  1. It is not stated exactly where the East Sindar lived, but the description and location of the lands they lived in coincides rather well with the description and location of Estolad.
