“Helm’s Deep & the Hornburg" Tolkien doodled on almost anything he could get his hands on. Here, he drew this view of Helm's Deep, the fortress retreat of the Rohirrim people, on a half-used page of an Oxford examination booklet. COURTESY OF THE BODLEIAN LIBRARIES, UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
tolkien-lore: The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say.
