The next Middle Earth cross section in my ongoing series.
"On a rocky knoll in the valley below the White Mountains stands a hall celebrating the proud regal lineage of the kingdom of Rohan. Adorned with sculptures of the Rohirrim’s trusted steed and intricate gold inlay, Meduseld, the Golden Hall is the defining building of Edoras. With little fortifications beyond the natural terrain, Edoras was built by Rohan’s second King, Brego son of Eorl the Young, to unify the surrounding villages.
The hall is topped with a straw roof, which gleams golden in the sunlight. Its walls are richly decorated with tapestries depicting the history and legends of the Rohirrim. It serves as a meeting hall, feast hall and house for the King Theoden."
