Talk:Emyn Arnen

The hills of Emyn Arnen were claimed to be "in fact, an eastern spur of the White Mountains" in some non-canon sources (The Tolkien Companion, The Council of Elrond), but no reference is given. And I remember reading that they were (or looked to be) cut off from Ered Nimrais by Anduin, something like that, indicating Emyn Arnen might have been part of Ered Nimrais ages ago. But ... I'm not sure. I can't find it anywhere in the books. I may have misremembered, but can someone confirm what I think I remember and provide a reference? I think this is worth noting.

Tolkien's essay The Rivers and Beacon Hills of Gondor (available in the internet) contains a paragraph about the Arnen region. In addition the Map of Rohan, Gondor and Mordor in The Return of the King and the large map of Middle-earth in the website of the Tolkien Estate on the maps page behind Durin's door show the hills of Emyn Arnen and all mountains (e.g. the Ephel DĂșath and the Ered Nimrais) with contour lines (i.e. in more detail). --Akhorahil 09:03, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
