365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 273: the Stone of the Hapless

This large stone, raised over the burial mound of Túrin Turambar and inscribed with his and Nienor’s names, was also the spot at which their mother, Morwen, was buried. Glirhuin of Brethil foretold that this Stone would never be defiled or taken down, and following the ruin of Beleriand, it did not fall, but instead became the centre of the island of Tol Morwen.
