365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 237: Nan Curunír

Nan Curunír (S. ‘Valley of Saruman’), also called the Wizard’s Vale, was a great valley in the southern Misty Mountains which opened into the Gap of Rohan. In the centre was situated the Ring of Isengard (originally called Angrenost before Saruman settled there). At one time a fertile and fruitful land watered by the Isen, only a few acres of land near Isengard had been cultivated by the slaves of Saruman at the time of the War of the Ring, and the rest of the valley had gone to waste.
