Hobbit Historical Field Trip – The Yondershire
Hither and yon again!
Date: Saturday April 30
Time: 7PM UK time / 2PM servertime
Location: Meet in Little Delving
What is the history of the Yondershire villages? Who lives there, and are there any famous inhabitants? Is there a Hithershire too?
Answers to these questions, and possibly more, may be given during the hobbit historical field trip. There are no guarantees, though!
Meet up in Little Delving. After a quick welcome, we’ll walk through parts of The Yondershire and see some of the sights, with stops where our historians present stories, tales, poetry and/or songs related to the history of the area. Food WILL be served, but of course, any hobbit knows that the safest bet is to bring some of yer own.
Want to know more about hobbit history? Bring a sturdy walking stick and be welcome along!
The historical field trips have been running irregularly since 2009. They combine a few lectures/stories of hobbit lore with a trip to locations of hobbit interest. If yer want to know more about hobbit and Shire history, this is yer chance. Remember that our historians often go for a tall, exciting tale more than strict lore accuracy, though!
Given the subject matter, this is certainly a hobbit-preferred event. The odd lore-seeking dwarf, man or elf interested in hobbit lore is of course welcome along, but wouldn’t you rather just roll a hobbit alt for the evening?
