The Northern Barrow-downs is an area within Bree-land in the southern region.

This area depicts the gloomy and hostile environment that Frodo and his fellowship struggled through not long ago. On September 26, III 3018, they set out from Tom Bombadil's House aiming at the eastern side of the barrows and Bree beyond. Exhausted and moody they sat down for a rest by the Dead Spire, that could have been an eternal rest unless Tom had reacted on a cry for help.

The northern section of the Barrow-downs contains several tombs (public dungeons) with various creatures and treasures. This area is not considered hard, though an incautious traveller may find the challenges overwhelming. Entries are via the Northern Barrows Pass or via the Old Barrows Road. There are provisioners and a few quest givers both at the Old Barrows Road and at the Dead Man's Perch to the east. Quest and mobs are generally in the levels 18 to 21, a couple are a bit harder.
