North and south Carrock?

Postby ngaur » Tue Feb 02, 2016 12:40 pm

In the map of the Wilderland that comes with the Hobbit there appears one eyot in Anduin a little North of the Carrock and another one a little bit South of the Carrock.

Does any of the books, or other work, such as Maps of Middle-Earth provide names for these eyots?

I don't know, but I don't see any labels for them on Karen Wynn Fonstad's 'Atlas' maps.

By the way, it seems that the Tindrock was passingly known as "Great Carrock" in the LOTR drafts, relegating the Carrock to "Little Carrock":

Maybe that was it. I had a shade of a memory that I'd read something about these eyots before, and it might have been what you mentioned. I also found now a reference to some earlier scribbled names for Carrock in Rateliffs work on the hobbit, Sinrock and Lamrock. I think now that in my mind I must have wondered if these were possible names for the other eyots. Though of course there is nothing to suggest that they were or had rocks on them at all.
