Notes

1

In Appendix D of The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien says, '...March 25, the date of the downfall of the Barad-dûr, would correspond to our March 27, if our years began at the same seasonal point.' In fact our years do not begin at the same point, but this 'Adjusted' date represents the date as it would be on the Shire Calendar if they did.
