The Tolkien Estate has updated its website with a trove of new content from the author.
The relaunch date of February 26 is significant in Tolkien lore because February 26, 3019 was the date in the Third Age when the Fellowship of the Ring was broken at Amon Hen and Frodo and Sam set out on their lonely and terrifying journey to Mordor.
To mark the date, 12 unseen works and photographs have been added to the Estate’s website to provide further insights into Tolkien’s life and times.
Included in these unseen works is a draft manuscript of ‘The homecoming of Beorhtnoth, Beorhthelm’s Son’, c.1953.
There are also six paintings, of both imaginary and real settings, and five photographs, with unseen shots of Tolkien and his family.
All of the content can be found on the Estate’s website.
