Arda Society

Arda is an annual for the furtherance and propagation of all discoveries and insights that render clearer the picture of the ancient world that J.R.R. Tolkien subcreated. Arda is bilingual: since volume III, each text in it is either in English with a summary in Swedish or other Scandinavian language, or else in a Scandinavian language with a substantial English summary (in volumes I and II always thus). Arda is published by the Arda Society with support from the Forodrim.
