A camp of Dor-Cúarthol

An encampment of those allied to Túrin and Beleg, the Two Captains of the Land of Bow and Helm, Dor-Cúarthol. Bar-erib was said to lie some distance to the south of the main encampment at Echad i Sedryn within the hill of Amon Rûdh. The meaning of the name Bar-erib is not certain, though it seems to translate as 'isolated dwelling', or possibly 'home of the lonely ones'. However isolated Bar-erib was, it was still close enough to Amon Rûdh that signals from that hill could be clearly seen.
