Valley of the Thanes
Article written by Gerrin
The Valley of the Thanes was located in Thorbardin and was the burial place of the residents of it. It is a sheltered valley that is inaccessible from the outside because of its sheer cliffs and its original name was Deadfall Valley. Along the cliffs there are several screw and plug gates that contain the remains of former thanes. Much of the ground was covered with the cairns or tombs of dwarves.
Colin Stonetooth's son-in-law Willen Ironmaul chose the valley as a place for Colin following his death. Other thanes and citizens of Thorbardin have followed this example and the valley has become a sacred place to all dwarves. The Tomb of Grallen and Duncan's Tomb were also located in the Valley of the Thanes.
