In the s and 40s Tolkien used a figure which fluctuated slightly around ten before settling on 9. However, in the s Tolkien decided to use a much greater value of solar years per Valian year.
When the Valar entered Arda , it was still lifeless and had no distinct geographical features. The initial shape of Arda, chosen by the Valar, was much more symmetrical, including the central continent of Middle-earth.
Middle-earth was also originally much larger , and was lit by the misty light that veiled the barren ground. The Valar concentrated this light in two large lamps, called Illuin and Ormal.
Illuin was set upon Helcar and Ormal upon Ringil. In the middle, where the light of the lamps mingled, the Valar dwelt at the island of Almaren upon the Great Lake.
This period, known as the Spring of Arda, was a time when the Valar had ordered the World as they wished and rested upon Almaren, and Melkor lurked beyond the Walls of Night.
During this time animals first appeared, and forests started to grow. The Spring of Arda was interrupted when Melkor returned to Arda, and ended completely when he assaulted and destroyed the Lamps of the Valar.
Arda was again darkened, and the fall of the great Lamps spoiled the symmetry of Arda's surface. New continents were created: Aman in the West, Middle-earth proper in the middle, the uninhabited lands later called the Land of the Sun in the East.
At the site of the southern lamp was later the Sea of Ringil. Shortly after the destruction of the Two Lamps and the kingdom of Almaren , the Valar abandoned Middle-earth , moving to the continent of Aman.
There they built their Second Kingdom, Valinor. Yavanna made the Two Trees , named Telperion the silver tree and Laurelin the golden tree in the land of Valinor.
The Trees illuminated Valinor, leaving Middle-earth in darkness lit only by stars. The Years of the Trees were divided into two epochs.
The first ten Ages, the Years of Bliss, saw peace and prosperity in Valinor. This was the first time after the Spring of Arda that Middle-earth was illuminated.
Learning of this, the Valar and the Maiar came into Middle-earth and, in the War of the Powers also called the Battle of the Powers , defeated Melkor and brought him captive to Valinor.
This began the period of the Peace of Arda. Along the journey several groups of Elves tarried, notably the Nandor and the Sindar. The three clans that arrived at Aman were the Vanyar , Noldor and the Teleri.
They made their home in Eldamar. The world was again dark, save for the faint starlight. The first Kinslaying thus ensued, and a curse was put on the house of the Noldor forever.
Meanwhile, the Valar took the last living fruit of Laurelin and the last living flower of Telperion and used them to create the Moon and Sun, which remained a part of Arda, but were separate from Ambar the world.
The first rising of the sun over Ambar heralded the end of the Years of the Trees, and the start of the Years of the Sun, which last to the present day.
The Years of the Sun were the last of the three great time-periods of Arda. They began with the first sunrise in conjunction with the return of the Noldor to Middle-earth , and last until the present day.
Tolkien estimated that modern times would correspond to the sixth or seventh age. These variations had earlier starting points, extending the First Age back to the creation of Arda , but consistently ended with Morgoth 's defeat in Beleriand.
This Peace lasted hundreds of years, during which time Men arrived over the Blue Mountains. At the end of the age, all that remained of free Elves and Men in Beleriand was a settlement at the mouth of the River Sirion and another on the Isle of Balar.
They responded, sending forth a great host. In the War of Wrath, Melkor was utterly defeated. Await us there, my brother — and me.
In this chapter, the eagles, after saving the company extended their help further by bringing the company nearer to their destination.
They were brought to The Carrock, some mountain formation said to be created by Beorn. Beorn is an interesting character in Middle-earth, much like Tom Bombadil and the stone giants.
Beorn is a shape shifter. He can be on the form of a man, huge and rough. He can also be a gigantic bear, fierce and strong.
It is nowhere mentioned in the mythology where such creature came from. If all men can transform as he, then men can drastically turn the tides of the battles in the First, Second and Third Ages.
More on Beorn. Beorn, although fierce and rough, have a good side in him. He provided a great help to the company.
Its name was taken from the first words of the Doom of Mandos : "Tears unnumbered ye shall shed The battle was a pivotal moment in the war as the northern power of the Elves took heavy casualties, allowing Morgoth to exercise his dominance over Beleriand.
In the almost two decades since their defeat in the Dagor Bragollach , the Noldor had lost control over the entire north of Beleriand, and were, for the most part, reduced to refugees dwelling in Hithlum and Nargothrond.
Gondolin was shut up and unknown. Thus he set out plans to reunite the foes of Morgoth under a new league, the Union of Maedhros.
Under this Union of Maedhros all the Elves of Beleriand, as well as the Edain , Dwarves , and the newly arrived Easterlings were invited to combine in arms and fight Morgoth.
The Elves of Falas also came. Tidings of the Union also came to Turgon. Because of the evil deeds of Celegorm and Curufin it hindered Maedhros' plans, Orodreth the king of Nargothrond refused to participate, but Gwindor joined the Union, commanding a group of Elves against his will.
A year later  Maedhros made the first trial of his strength and cleared the northward regions of Beleriand of Orcs and regained much of the land the Elves lost in the Dagor Bragollach, even Dorthonion was freed.
Unbeknown to Maedhros Ulfang and his followers were in secret league with Morgoth and he was well aware of the plans of the Union from his spies.
The Union of Maedhros was divided into two hosts, the western host was commanded by Fingon and the eastern host was commanded by Maedhros.
The strategy of the Union was for Maedhros to march in force into Anfauglith , there he hoped Morgoth would respond by sending out his armies to meet the eastern host.
The western host would remain hidden in the woods and valleys east of Ered Wethrin waiting for the firing of a great beacon in Dorthonion.
Upon firing of the beacon Fingon would lead his host and engage the host of Morgoth from the west hoping to break it like hammer and anvil.
The western host was reinforced later when Turgon unexpectedly came forth with ten thousand Gondolindrim. On the morning of Midsummer the trumpets of the Eldar greeted the rising of the sun and hosts of Fingon and Maedhros gathered in the west and east.
Fingon on the walls of Eithel Sirion saw his host arrayed, hidden in the woods and he looked to the east and through the dust he saw the glint of steel and indeed Maedhros had set forth into Anfauglith.
A dark cloud gathered about Thangorodrim and the wrath of Morgoth was aroused and he accepted the challenge. Ornoth , [ 18 ] N. Irnoth , N.
Tolkien survived the Battle of the Somme , where Britain lost a great fraction of a generation.
A possible influence from World War One, if one must be found, can be seen in the terming of the 5 Battles of Beleriand as Battles when each actually contains more than one battle and, like the Battle of the Somme, more properly might be called an Offensive.
