365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 168: The Reckoning of Years

The Reckoning of Years, written by Meriadoc ‘the Magnificent’ Brandybuck, contained an invaluable account of the Hobbit calendars used throughout the Shire and Bree, and also included a comparative study of the reckoning systems used in Rivendell, Rohan, and Gondor. It is considered the primary source for the information appearing in Appendix D of The Lord of the Rings.
