LOTR unoffcial read through Appendices

Appendix A - Annals of the Kings and Rulers

*Note how Tolkien keeps up the faux realism of his works as presented to the reader: "The section A III, Durin's Folk, was "probably" derived from Gimli the Dwarf....actual extracts from longer annals.....notes within quotation are found in the sources....etc."

He keeps the reader enthralled in the story and you imagine he has discovered a long lost trove of ancient documents from some monastery that was preserved since AElfwine brought them back form his tarrying.

"When Ălfwine woke up, he found himself lying on a beach of Tol EressŰa and a group of Elves pulling up his ship on the shore. He came to Tavrobel, where lived Pengolodh who told him the AinulindalŰ,[5] and he was shown the Lammas,[6] the Quenta Silmarillion, the Golden Book,[7] the Narn i Chţn H˙rin,[8] and the Annals of Aman and Beleriand.

Ălfwine learned much of this lore. When he returned to England, he translated the Silmarillion, the Annals and the Narn into Old English, giving explanations on the many names.

Descendants of Ălfwine of the present time experienced memories or visions of their ancestors around the fall of Atlantis (cf. N˙menor: Inspiration).

[edit] Other versions of the Legendarium"
