'...In those days, north-eastern Arthedain was dominated by five great settlements, known commonly as The Five Towns. These were Henneth Rhún, south of Fornost; Duintham, astride an ancient stream; Carnoglin, in the northern hills; Ost Ardúlin, in the lake-lands; and Dolindîr, now called Esteldín.'
'Amongst the Rangers of the North Downs, we encourage our people to visit all five of the Towns and discover the locations of their Founding Stones. It is important to remember who we are....'
You have found a book that describes the Founding Stones of Arthedain's Five Towns. Now mostly in ruins, these towns are 'Henneth Rhún, south of Fornost; Duintham, astride an ancient stream; Carnoglin, in the northern hills; Ost Ardúlin, in the lake-lands; and Dolindîr, now called Esteldín.'
