Approaching Edoras along the road through the Barrowfield


Edoras is a settlement located within the area of Kingstead in West Rohan. [60.8S, 74.2W]

The city was built on a hill just outside the valley called Harrowdale which lay under the great mountain Starkhorn.

This valley was formed by the River Snowbourn's rise in the White Mountains. Underharrow guarded the mouth of the valley, the sanctuary of Dunharrow and the Paths of the Dead behind it.

The river Snowbourn flowed past Edoras on its way west to meet with the River Entwash at Snowbourn.

Edoras was encircled by a wall, and a dike dug around the hill.

Lining the road approaching Edoras from the South was the Barrowfield, the tombs of the Rulers of Rohan arrayed in two lines. Simbelmyne grew there.
