Day 131: Middle-Earth demographics!!!

by Sara


“As part of his ongoing The Lord of the Rings Project, Emil Johansson has put together a census of the populace of Middle Earth. By parsing the descriptions and histories as told in Tolkein’s many books, including those published after his death, Johansson put together statistics on the gender balance, life expectancies for different species and the long-term decline in the longevity of humanity.”
