Men of Old

The Exiles of Númenor at their ancient height

When Elendil and his sons came to Middle-earth in the last years of the Second Age, they brought with them the knowledge and power of the Númenórean nation. They filled the landscape of Middle-earth with mighty cities, castles and towers. Their knowledge, though, was forgotten by later generations, who could only look on what remained of their works with wonder.
