Talk:Valian Years

From Tolkien Gateway

Where is the source for the approximation of the Valian year? Because in the Annals of Valinor it is set to be ten times that of solar years. ~denDAY 20:14, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Good question. Looking at this forum discussion, it appears like the source would be one of Tolkien's letters (I suspect a letter published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien). Would you have time to check? --Morgan 20:26, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
Sorry but I am not in possession of those letters. ~denDAY 20:33, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
I found a better forum thread, which has some sources. The relevant source appears to be Morgoth's Ring (HoMe vol. 10), Myth's Transformed section, text IX (Aman).--Morgan 20:46, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
I see. Haven't gotten that far in the History of Middle-earth yet. ~denDAY 21:07, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
