365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 298: Androth

Androth (S. ‘Long-caves’ or ‘Long delving’) was a system of complex caves located within the Mountains of Mithrim. Following the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, some of the surviving Sindar and Edain – led by Annael – lived there in hiding. Tuor was fostered by the Elves of Androth after the death of his father until he was sixteen; when Annael left the caves seeking to relocate the Havens of Sirion, the group was attacked by the Easterlings, and Tuor taken as a slave. He managed to escape and return to Androth, where he lived alone for four years before leaving for Dor-lómin.
