This region is rich in minerals, most notably iron – whence came the name of the Hills. The Hills were originally a part of the massive Iron Mountains where Morgoth dwelt; other remains of this vanished range were the Mountains of Angmar and Ered Mithrin. The Iron Hills were also the source of the River Redwater, the reddish colour of which came from iron particles in its water. The river joins onto the River Running.
The Iron Hills were first settled by Farin Blackmattock of the Longbeards in the First Age. His keep, Járnfast was shattered in the breaking of Thangorodrim but was rebuilt, and stands still. The Iron Hills are the domain of the Lords of the Iron Hills. Náin the Slakeless, son of Dáin Ironfoot, holds the title now, at the end of the Third Age.

The Iron Hills layin the north-eastern parts of Middle-earth. The hills were situated east of the Lonely Mountain, on the boundary between Rhovanion and Rhûn. The Iron Hills were rich in minerals, most notably iron, whence came their name. The Hills were originally a part of the massive Iron Mountains where Morgoth had dwelt; other remains of this vanished range were the Mountains of Angmar and Grey Mountains. The Iron Hills were also the source of the River Redwater, the reddish colour of which came from iron particles in its water. The river joined with the River Running to flow into the Sea of Rhûn.
