Hill of Spies

The guard-hill of Nargothrond

Map of the Hill of Spies

Amon Ethir, the artificial hill raised by Finrod Felagund eastward of his stronghold of Nargothrond, as a watch on the wide Guarded Plain of Talath Dirnen. Its most important part in history came after Nargothrond's loss, since it was here that Túrin's sister Niënor encountered the gaze of Glaurung, and lost all memory of her former life.
