The mound of the Haudh in Gwanûr (slightly conjectural)1
The mound raised on the banks of the Poros by the Men of Rohan to entomb their lords Folcred and Fastred, twin sons of Folcwine slain in battle with Harad.
While we know that the Haudh stood at the Crossings of Poros, we're not told exactly where it stood in relation to the Crossings, nor is it shown on any map. A comment in Appendix A to The Lord of the Rings places it 'high upon the shore of the river', and accordingly the map above places it in the higher land we know ran eastward from the Crossings, though this location is necessarily speculative.
