This area lies west of the Old Forest and southeast of Bree . For many thousands of years, it has been a burial ground of Men, especially the Dúnedain of the lost northern kingdom of Cardolan. The Elven name for these barrows is Tyrn Gorthad.
During the war with the Witch-King of Angmar, the men of Cardolan took refuge here, hiding amongst the hills and mound tombs. But in the Third Age 1636, the Witch-king sent evil spirits known as wights to inhabit the tombs. Thus the barrows became places of fear and cursed darkness through which few pass and even fewer are known to live to tell of the journey.
